Grandma Diana was the sweetest most kind hearted person. My mom Rose and my younger sister Veronica used to visit her and Grandpa Albert often growing up, swimming in her pool and eating lunch on her deck but most of all eating at Rustins Diner, I remember Grandma Diana, Aunt Barbie and Aunt Arlene used to all be there my favorite meal was sunny side up eggs and toast and bacon, Grandma used to let me get any donut I wanted she said because I was such a good girl. I Loved my Grandmother who I was named after with all my heart I will never forget her, her memory and Love will live on in my heart forever. Rest in Paradise- we all gained an amazing angel.
