I met Diane more than 25 years ago while working for another local manufacturer in the Pet Industry. We traveled to the same shows, sold to the same customers, and spent many evenings together while attending various pet industry dinners and events. Diane was an amazing person, mentor, and friend. Always caring and quick to ask how you were doing, inquire about your family, and our other industry friends. She was greatly respected, full of wisdom, and made a very positive impact on me. Diane will be sadly missed. Reset in peace my friend.

Dianne was a very sweet lady. Definitely one of a kind and didn’t have a mean bone in her body. She always laughed at my jokes and I think enjoyed me picking on her son even more than I did... She’ll definitely be missed, but I’m glad she moved on to the better place.
