"My mother was an amazing person, whose laugh and smile will never be forgotten.

I was in shock and heartbroken when I heard of Diane's passing. I've known her for many years thru high school friends. Diane was a kind girl that was liked by everyone who new her, she was so intelligent and always worked hard to support her son, who was her loving angel that she was so proud of and she would light up with all smiles when she spoke of Chris, he was her life! She will be so missed, my thoughts and prayers go out to Laura and the Morrow family and I know she's with her loving mother.
May you rest in peace Diane your home in God's hands❤

My deepest condolences go out to Diane's family and loved ones.
Although I never met Diane, I knew much about her through my dear friends, Laura (Diane's sister) and Art Morrow. Laura spoke of Diane often and was so very proud of her accomplishments at Lakeland Bank. Laura and Art were very supportive of Diane and were especially proud of their nephew, Chris. I pray for God's strength for Diane's family during this difficult time. May you rest in peace, Diane.

I was so saddened to hear this news on Monday. I will never forget Diane’s first few weeks at Lakeland. She was so green with her new role but at the same time so eager to grow and show what she can do. In a brief period of time we built quite a few projects together. She was a commited and tireless worker and she really really cared about everyone around her. I feel blessed to have gotten to know Diane and I hope her family can find the time to celebrate her life. What a great soul you are Diane.
God Bless 🙏🏻
