Diane was a very incredible person. She negoiated through some very difficut times with grace and dignity. She set an example for all of us, particularly for those of us who are in the twilight of our lives. Thanks Diane for being a wonderful friend to Don and myself and others, you were a gifted artistic gift card designer, fabulous neighbor, super luncheon pal, a voracious reader and book club member and radiant pool partner, among many other things. We all benefitted from your talent and your beauty. We will watch over Lloyd and the family and we will share our love. Just know you will always be in our hearts and thoughts. Love to you sweet Diane. Don and Carroll

I met her through my sister,Anna McGonis,but I remember how beautiful I thought she was , so blond & beautiful ....quite a contrast from my dark haired beautiful sister ...I’m sure they both got a lot of attention when out together! I know Anna has always spoken of her and Diane’s friendship....and I know Diane will be missed by many. My condolences to you all.... and I’m gonna check out how to adopt a baby elephant!!!!

My Mudder,

You are now at rest and peace after your long fight to live life to the fullest for as long as possible. You saved me when you loved and adopted me. You’ve always been my Earth Angel. Now you are my Heavenly Angel. Your spirit is so strong and I know you will always be with me to guide, chide, and support me! I miss you terribly though.

Mom, you asked in lieu of flowers, for loved ones to support the Shedrick Wildlife Trust and adopt an orphaned baby elephant. The website is:

stay with us. We will try to live up to your high standards. And since you’re up there, please tell God I love Him.

Love you always, Karen (yer eldest :-))
