I met Diana while doing volunteer work at the Children's Home with the Tennessee Campers on Mission. Diana was a wonderful mom to all her kids and always had a smile on her face, even when we knew she wasn't feeling well. She will be greatly missed on the Children's Home campus when we visit again, but I know she's now smiling in God's presence as she worships Him.

Diana and I became friends 45 years ago. In all that time, she never changed -- always a kind word, ready smile, and help to anyone in need. I am proud to have been her friend. She will be in my heart and thoughts always. My prayers go out to all her family.

I looked better today than I have in a long time, but the person who it was for couldn't even open her eyes. I don't know if I made her proud or not, I don't know if she realized how much she taught, but she made me proud, proud to be me, and I'm definitely proud to call her my grammie.
