I have so many cherished memories of Diana. We shared the same bus stop for years, grade school all the way through high school. She often asked to participate in our baseball games in the neighborhood empty lot, and she could outhit a lot of the guys who were playing. From double dating at the local drive inn theater to enjoying a Caribbean Cruise a few years ago, she was always such a pleasure to be with.
Please accept my deepest condolences for your family's loss. May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you!

I loved that some of my mom's brothers, sisters and even her mom could drive over to see her one day last year to spend the day together. This is a great memory and one my mom really appreciated having.

The Lord was so gracious when Brianna became part of our family He brought you into our family and us into yours and you have been a sweet blessing to us since then. I count it a privilege to have known and loved you. To quote Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables you were a " kindred spirit" from the beginning and I am going to miss you. RIP dear friend.
