So many memories. Diane and I started as room mothers at St Bonaventure School, Nora and Chrissy were maybe in 1st grade. We cherished that job and got to know each other as well as the kids. She always had great art skills!

As the kids grew, in 1988, she called me and said go get an application to become a bus driver and I followed her footsteps of a week or so earlier and we trained together to become WS School bus drivers. It was a great job we both enjoyed and we managed to stay sane throughout our careers with her funniness and spirit!

I had to leave that job due to an auto accident/ back problem and tended not to keep in touch with those still enjoying their job. My loss, my regret, not keeping up with her life after my career had ended.
I will ever be grateful for that phone call to get that job that brought me years of happiness.
