You can be so proud of your family! You more than earned your heavenly reward, yet you are sorely missed here on earth. But, we can also rejoice that you are whole and healthy in heaven, and are reunited with those who have been watching for you. Love and hugs and prayers for your family, Diane, as they grieve, yet enjoy the wonderful memories you made together.
