It's so hard to believe it's been nearly 4 years now. An entry today reminded me of you Diana so I took some time out to make yet another special prayer for you. I think of you often, especially when the Astros are on TV or when I go to a game. We had more in common than just as peers. You are missed.

I was recently informed of Diana's death and while I knew her only briefly while she served as an ADA in Cameron County I remember our time together very fondly. She was truly a special person and I will always regret not keeping more in touch over the years. Rest in peace. Love those nearest to you without regret.

I came across this by accident while looking for information on our 30th reunion. Diana will be missed. We had many classes together. Our world has lost a great pillar of the community but Heaven has gained an Angel.
