John, Jaren and Kris,
I am so deeply saddened to hear about the loss of your beautiful wife/mother. I am so grateful that I had an opportunity to meet her and spend a day with her. At the end of the day as we parted I gave her a hug, told her I would pray for her. I walked away saying "what an incredible person she is" she had such a positive attitude, so easy to talk to and when she spoke of her husband and sons, I can see the love in her eyes, she truly adored you. I pray that all the wonderful memories you had with her will forever stay fresh in your hearts.
Remember, A Mother's Love is Forever ....

John, Jaren and Chris,
Although I seldom saw Diane in recent years somehow those connections we made when the boys were at Pinecrest seem to be cemented in my memory. Diane always seemed so vibrant and so much younger (which she was). I also had the opportunity to talk to Diane a few times after her diagnosis with cancer. What a shock to hear that news! Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time.
