I was looking at my calendar yesterday . I was adding reminders to my phone and the reminder I made for you popped up. So I would remember to bring your gift , card, and balloons by. I will truly miss my Big Sister. I just hate we didn't have more Time. Adrian ( as you called him your Brother In Law) was talking about you yesterday saying he remember the last conversation y'all had. You are truly missed . Things will not be the same without your presence on this earth. I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND ALWAYS. Your Baby Sister Sherlonda

I remember the very first time we met, you looked and asked who is this, I thought to myself she mean. The second time when I came to visit we sat and laugh and I saw a loving mother with a big heart for all. You finally told me you weren’t trying to come off mean you was bringing food and thought you didn’t have enough. You never treated any child different and you cared and showed love. You will truly be missed. My prayers are with the family. Love you all 💜❤️

She was a very caring and loving sister -in-law. My mom treated her more like a daughter than a daughter-in-law.
She will be missed but God has got her now.

I will forever remember the talks Diane and I had, she was a very intelligent and loving woman. I’m so happy the boys and I got to spend time with her. That beautiful smile and the warm hugs she gave will never be forgotten.

Hello, Sister ‼️‼️‼️‼️ That’s how I answered the phone when you called... I loved you soooooo much ‼️‼️‼️ You raised me. You were second Mom to me. You loved strong and hard. Helped many some who didn’t deserve. When our Mom died . You stepped up took care of our Dad , helped our brothers , and loved on my children without a question being ask. I remember the rides in the car listening to Anita Baker . I can still hear your laughs Your voice . You always tried to protect me from heart ache you know I’m a hard shell on the outside but a BIG BABY on the inside. You loved me without questioning anything. When I called you to talk . You never judged you just listen . We cried on the phone many times together... I will miss those long conversations. I WISH GOD would have allowed US more time. Your niece and nephew were talking about you last night. Don said Aunt Diane always came through. Mom I remember our last conversation. She was talking to me about College and Life . Don said wish I would’ve reached out more and loved on her more. Thinking we had time but not knowing our time was running short. People saw your hard Shell. But you were as GENTLE AS A GIANT‼️I CAN FEEL YOU NEAR . I Thank God He Blessed Me To have a Sister like you. Some people will never understand the BOND we had . We will always Love you forever.... YOUR BABY SISTER SHERLONDA💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

I spent many days and nights at aunt Diane's growing up. I remember her radiant smile as I would walk under the carport and through the front door. I couldn't wait to get to the backyard and swing on the swingset or to the tire swing. I remember learning how to scale a fish in that same backyard. She gave the warmest hugs when I would arrive but then again when I would leave. She'd take Raven and I everywhere. Waking up, walking from the back of the house and into the kitchen just to see her pouring her coffee was often a pleasant site. This past year, she'd text me every holiday. I had just become spoiled to that and it has been taken away too soon. The love she gave, I could never forget because she loved me like I was one of her own! To know her is to love her and she will truly be missed!
