David and family,
I extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family. I have such great memories as a child being best friends with Diane, playing at your home and tasting German food for the first time. Your Mother was such a beautiful strong woman whom I have great respect for and will always cherish the memories I hold of her and Diane. May she be at peace and may comfort come to all of you during this time of life.

Dell was family to us for years. Virtual hugs to those left behind. I have found myself envisioning last night and today her dancing on the Golden streets with Diane and her husband and many other family members we don’t even know. It is very sad but I am happy she is peaceful now. Love Mitzie and Bruce
