My deepest condolences to Diane's family and friends. The memories I have are mostly from childhood, when all us first cousins played together, usually at Memere's on Lincoln Street. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and her.
Sincerely,
Anita Bussiere

We grew up as neighbors going back in years to grammar school. Her dad would stop by my house to pick me up on the way to school for a ride. Her being 4 years younger than me, if I wasn't ready when he stopped by, she'd let me know. She was quite a character and I know that all her knew her will miss having her around. She was always full of pep and vitality. I loved hearing her tell her stories and hearing her voice and laughter. She was a lot of fun to be around. God bless her and her family as they mourn her lost.
