We remember Dianne as always smiling always with a twinkle in her eyes. She seemed to embrace life fully and wow, she loved the grandchildren. She was never selfish, wanted to help any way she could. When she found out her Uncle Buck and I needed glasses, she was quick to say she would make them for us where she worked. Family was important to her. We haven’t stayed in touch as we should lately but she was a special lady. We loved her and she will be missed.

I always loved you, Dianne. We grew up together and had so much fun. You always kept everyone laughing. I wish it hadn't been so long since we had seen each other. RIP. See you on the other side.
