Diane always treated me like part of the family, I will miss her dearly! She passed along many recipes that I will continue to make for my family.

Diane and I just met about 10 years ago in Assistance League. We worked the same shift in the thrift shop and boy did we laugh a lot. She was honest, loved her husband and daughter and her grandchildren owned her. We had lunch together often and poured our hearts out to each other. She enjoyed decorating her home for every occasion. Such a special lady. So glad that I knew her.
