Diana, you were a bright comet in that landscape known as "life". You were one of the few people I know that left large footprints in the sand. I hope to see you again sometime, on the other side of that rainbow bridge.

Diana and her family have always been so kind and wonderful to me. Treated me like I was part of their family and I will always treasure every special memory I made with Diana over the years. Every memory we made together will always bring a smile to my face. She was a beautiful, caring, strong and courageous woman. I will deeply miss Diana. Until we meet again. I love you always and forever.

Diana was a fantastic woman. Always friendly and never too busy to give advice or chat. This world lost a good person when Diana left us. She will be missed by so many.
