It's very difficult when you see an obituary of someone you spent so many years with has passed away too soon. I worked with Diana for many years and have many fond memories of her. She had a great sense of humor and her smile and laugh was something I'll always remember. We both have a deep love of animals and I know she will be all smiles when she joins her fur baby in heaven. Rest in peace sweet girl!

Dear Diana,
It has been quite a few years ago that we hung out at the Department of Commerce, I will never forget how much fun I had with you and how sweet, kind and bubbly you were. I’m so sry to see you go too soon. I found a few pics of our days but none of us together. Here’s one of you and Gina, April 1989. I pray for comfort and peace at this time for your family and loved ones.

You will be forever in my heart. You have touched me and have cared for me so much over the years. Even though we are not blood, you are still my family and will always remain as part of my family. I’m glad I was there with you until your last breath. Love you granny D ( I know you hated that haha).
