I met Diane at Memorial Hospital . I was in training in the Medical Records Department where She had worked for a few years ahead of Me so it was nice to get help from her when I felt Lost.. She always made it seem so easy even though I felt helpless.. If not for her help, I might not have survived! I will always remember her and I will Truly Miss her.
God and his Angels will take good care of you now Diane .

Miss you Diane
Always

Diane and I went through school together. She alway had a smile and great wit. She teated me with such kindness. I moved away from Fountain many years ago, however I have such fond memories of our high school years together.

Diane you were a wonderful cousin. We grew so close over these past two years and especially since Aunt Alice passed away. You were very brave and fought a noble fight. I believe you are now in the arms of your parents, playing with your cats and horses. Please give my mom and dad a hug for me. Rest in peace. Love, Cousin Susan

Diane and I shared an office together at Memorial Hospital ( UCHealth ) for almost 15 years until she retired. , I was so shocked and sad to hear the news of her passing. We were friends on Facebook and she loved sharing pictures of her horses, I will always have fond memories of you Diane. You were such a good person with so much to give. RIP my dear friend "The most painful Goodbyes are the ones that are never said and never explained. "

I grew up in Rangeview (housing area) and the Knapp family lived in the Bricks.
Our family were friends. Diane stopped in to visit with me a couple of years ago and it was like no time had past since we had last seen each other. She knew everything going on in Fountain and she even bought some antiques from me.
Glad I knew her.
