My sincerest condolences to Diane's family. I was Diane's Distributive Education teacher at Seaway Tech Center in Norwood, NY. Diane was in my class during her Junior and Senior Year of High School. I have very fond memories of her over those two years. I also had the pleasure of meeting her and reminiscing several times over the years. She was a sweet and conscientious young lady.
She was one of the students that remains in your memory.
May God bless.
