I met Diane through our kids. Rachel chased Aiden up a tree our first year in Morgantown. The first time we carpooled to church, Diane offered to drive. I must have been distracting her with my chatter and she never mentioned that she didn't quite know the fastest way to get there. I assumed that she knew a better way and didn't want to ask. By the time we arrived, the service was half over so we agreed to try again the following week and turned back home-- the efficient way! We carpooled many more times to church after that. She had such a reverence for the things of God. I know she hoped that Rachel would grow up to put her trust in Jesus and choose a faith and Hope-filled life.

I loved our midweek luncheons, our occasional walks through the neighborhood, laughing about the special relationship between our kids and evening hangouts on the patio (hers and mine), though the hospitality was far lovelier at her house, as John would set up the cushions and fire pit so we could relax. This always impressed me.

During a sensitive time in my life, Diane was a safe and precious friend that I could be real with. She also made me laugh. Her intelligence, humility and quiet-strength adorned her. She was a beautiful person inside and out.

I hope she's enjoying dancing with Jesus and all the beauty and glory of the heavenly realm. May the kindness and comfort of Holy Spirit will be very near to you John and Rachel, the entire family and dogs too.

Deepest Sympathies and Love,
Erin Miranda and Family

So deeply sorry to hear about Diane's passing. We went to High school together and I have fond memories of singing in choir with her. Such a kind, smart lovely person. Prayers for her family.

My deepest heartfelt sympathies to all of you . The Glancey household was my second home as young child. I will always cherish the memories I have of Diane. Gone way too soon.

I met Diane in elementary school. I was not well accepted by my peers but Diane was always very nice and gracious to me. Lately we reconnected on Facebook and I was glad to know her again. I will always remember her as a loving, caring, and thoughtful person.
