Diana was a special woman who loved listening. I will always remember the way her eyes literally danced as she enjoyed stories or fellowship. She was always interested in what was happening in everyone's lives & her genuine delight in relationships made her so easy to be around.
Wishing the hurt of her departure to be lessened with God's peace and the memories of all things good of Diana to her family.
