Diane was the sister of my cousin in law, Tammy.
Diane and I studied the Bible together at one time in her life. She was always very kind. I appreciated her kindness. I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Mama and daddy, Louis and Frances are very sorry. They cared for Diane also. Ours prayers are with her family. She is resting and at peace now.

I have the most amazing and cherished memories with Aunt Dianne that will last a lifetime. I remember staying with her so much when I was little and she loved to make me remember how she was “the only” one who could rock me to sleep. My mom was her sister in law but they considered themselves sisters and growing up I remember them always being together. If I’ve ever had an aunt that made me feel loved and acknowledged, it was definitely her. She will be missed greatly.

Our deepest condolences, our love, and our prayers are sent out to you all as you go through this horrible time. I love y’all.
