Heaven has truly gained an Angel. How blessed I and Befriended Felines was to know her. Her compassion toward Felines and to nature as a whole is a great loss to this world. She was one of the great rarities and jewels in a world which often dotes on self serving satisfaction. I considered Diane a true kindred spirit, as I've come to regard as well, her beloved sister Evelyn and her ever-loving husband, Don. The Heavens have gained and the earth has lost an amazingly compassionate, intelligent and giving soul.
