Diane was good friends with my Aunt (Carolyn Foell). They took trips together and played dominoes and when I took my Aunt to the Flea Market, Diane met us there. I became her friend also, and when my Aunt was ill, I would call and let Diane know and after she passed away, I would call and check on Diane every so often to see how she was doing. We both loved cats and the Kentucky Wildcats. I will miss chatting with her, she was a sweet little lady.
With Sincere Sympathy,
Karen (Foell) Birkemeier
