We are much saddened to learn that Donna Dianne has passed on. We have many many warm and wonderful memories of the super friendship we shared. She was so loving in how she treated us and others. The world would be so much better if her example as a caring person would be followed by all.

I will miss Diane. She was an amazing woman. Forever in my memory was seeing her ride a camel in India and crying when she saw the dominant male tiger. She was a real trooper!
