Walking on the greenway around the lake at Apex Park , located between Laura Duncan Rd and Lake Pine Rd , in Cary/Apex NC, and saw this bench. It provided a peaceful place to overlook the lake. Thank you.

Gayle and Tammy, I just saw this in the paper and wanted to send to you my sympathy. It is hard enough to loose a parent or a sibling... but during the Holidays makes it even harder. Take Care~My thoughts are with you~ Maryann

Diane was like a sister to me. I will miss her deeply! We have so many happy memories that we made together with our families. Diane was a talented seamstress and she loved to cross stitch. She made many beautiful things for our home over the years. Our kids also have many Christmas ornaments that she made for them since childhood. We will cherish these items forever. Diane's memorial service was beautiful. Our continued love and prayers go out to all of you.

Ken and Family, Diane and I met at Newcomers in Aiken. We realized we had a connection thru Chad & Mandy Dockery of IL., our love of family, home, and gardening. Your home and garden were beautiful. Always wished we could have spent more time together, but life gets in the way of life and you moved for very good reasons. fyi: my daughter bought one of your sofas. I was shocked to read of Diane's passing from this world. I am so sorry for the hole in your hearts. I will remember Diane fondly. Susan Leith

Ken & family -

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay awhile, make footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same. Diane left footprints on all those she met - we are so sorry for your loss and we will be thinking of you with love at this difficult time.

Ken and family -- My deepest sympathies for your loss. Diane was a wonderful person. During our childhood, we spent every weekend visiting aunts, uncles, and, of course, cousins. There are so many memories of the times we shared.

There aren't any words to help you or express how I feel. The best thing I can say is remember the good times and al the memories you created.

My prayers are with you.
