Pam and Shane,

I don't have a lot of memories with Diane, but I do remember the day you asked me to style her hair for her. I remember how peacefully she sat there while I worked and how thankful she was for my help. It meant a lot to me to be asked to do it.

You are an example to me of how to love my parents well. I admire you for many reasons, but the fierce love you have for your mother, and the way you cared for her, are very near the top of the list.

I pray God comforts you both with the hope of reuniting with Diane in Heaven, but I know that doesn't change the pain of "now". I hurt with you. I'm here for anything you might need in the weeks to come.

I love you, brother and sister ❤

I have so many memories of my mother but some of the most tender have been in the last couple of months when we just sat together and talked.

She was the most amazing person. Even though she was limited after her many physicals issues, her heart was there and true. I will miss her everyday...love you most mother!❤️
