This all seems like a bad dream I just truly can't believe you're gone we had some crazy but fun times in school you taught me how to fight only when I had too and not take no mess from anyone I know we drifted apart over the years but you were never forgotten nor will you ever you're my guardian angel and when I see a white mustang with a convertible top I'll be thinking that one time when we went out in it with the top down rest easy Di till we meet agin

Diana, not only were you an awesome & attentive caregiver to my parents you were a friend. You went above & beyond to make my parents last years happy as well as attending to their physical needs. You were a great support & could make us laugh through the difficult times. My mother always enjoyed her drives on the beach in your Mustang. That wasn’t something you had to do. You wanted to so she could have some joy in her home bound years. You put everybody else’s needs above your own. I know you & my parents are dancing & laughing in Heaven!
Love,
Sarita

Rest in Peace Diana. I will never forget all our crazy and highly inappropriate conversations with our Moms and their Sisters on the front porch on Cloud Street. We were crazy but we were free! The world won't be the same without your free spirit.

Diana,
It’s hard knowing I will never speak to you or see you again. I just want to thank you for being such a great loving step- mom to me. You helped mold me into the woman I am today and for that I am grateful. You were a mother first, then a wife. You have always put yourself last and waited till you raised your children to do you, and even after that you kept giving more of yourself. You gave us your all when we were small and that means so much as time can never be paid back. Thank you for your advice you have given me throughout my life. You will truly be missed! Love you Diana! ❤️

I don't know where to start mom. But I will say that I miss you like crazy words can't Express the pain that I feel. I'm going to miss our rides and long talks about the future. The crazy faces you make when you'd say "your mama is still young girl and I look good" singing Madonna in the drive through at McDonalds and honking just to wave at random people. You were definitely a character and always knew how to put a smile on everyone's face. I thank you for everything you've done for me and teaching me all the great things in life. I miss you mom and I will make sure I do everything I told you I would to keep our family together. As you said 'you live, learn and forgive one another' I LOVE YOU❤
