She was a great Mother and a great friend. Even after I was grown and gone- whenever I was scared Ma would talk me through it. She could be contrary but her heart was always in the right place. I know Heaven will be busy for a while listening to her stories. Rest in Peace Ma and know that we are all OK.

To all of this lovely lady's family and friends, I want you to know I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I pray you feel the loving comfort of God today as you grieve the loss of your dear loved one. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted". I pray for that comfort for you today and in the days ahead. I care!

Diane and I met when we were both living in El Paso, TX many years ago and I last spent time with her at Katie’s wedding and reception. She was a very special lady and will be greatly missed by all who’s lives she touched. Rest In Peace Lady Diane!
