To the Casella Family, We here on Annette Av. in Mint Hill were saddened to learn of Diane's illness and death. We have thought of you all often and wondered where you were and how you were. We have missed you since you ran the dry cleaners here. Please know that you have our sympathy and prayers as you go through this sad time.

My precious baby, you will be sorely missed here and I suppose it is selfish, such as it is for we mere mortals. But I know with no doubt that you walk with Jesus now, that you are pain free and I imagine you as a healed child and watching over us all, a winged angel. To all who knew and loved our sister in Christ, we were blessed by her being. I am a different man because of her. To the moon and back my baby girl, by God's Grace I will hold you again and see that smile that goes over the rainbow. God bless you all.

My condolences to all of you as to live your lives without Diane. She was my Facebook friend for awhile and I marveled at her humor and ability to encourage others as she dealt with such difficult illnesses. Her poetry was warm and comforting. Hers was a friendly soul. Rest in health and peace, Diane.

Betty, Bobby, Lisa and all other family members and friends,
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Diane's passing. It's been years since I saw her but we were good friends for many years.
Please know you are in my prayers during this time of grief but we all know that Diane had been sick for many years and she is no longer sick and is with your Mom, Dad and Louis, as well as all others who went on before.
Blessings and peace to each of you!!!!!
