Aunt Diane was such a sweet loving person. As a child I have fond memories going to her house for visits and camping. She always opened her doors with loving arms and made everyone feel at home.
My deepest condolences to my cousins and their families. Know your momma is walking the streets of Gold with our Lord and Savior. I am sure she is catching up with her beloved husband Bill. I know my momma Edith and our Grandma was one of the first in line to greet her along with many others who have gone before her. May you have peace and comfort knowing she is in a much better place and surrounded in the Love of Christ. God bless and love to you all, Cousin Carrie

Aunt Diane I never had enough time with you, life is crazy that way. I loved you so very very much and felt very close to you, as you always opened your home and your arms to me when I showed up at your house because I'd be working in the area. In my younger years we spent a lot of time with you camping, the fair and family BBQ's with my uncles making beer sauce hamburgers. You were such a sweet, loving and giving person I will miss you, but I know how much my mother, your sister, loved you and so you have her there to show you around Heaven. Along with your mom, your husband, your brother, Johnny, my dad, Billy and Greg to name a few. No more pain for you, but a lot of pain in my heart as you were a terrific aunt and a beautiful woman. Until we meet again. Love Your Niece Becky Ellis
