  • Please accept my condolences on Diane’s passing. I graduated from high school with her at Highland. I pray for God to comfort all of you.

  • Rest in heavenly peace my sweet Sister. My heart is broken and I miss you more than words can express. I will miss our hours of conversation every day and we will have to wait for our pink and blue ribbons for our matching rocking chairs. My life is forever changed now, but I know you are in good health and that you are enjoying the family that has prepared a path for the rest of us. My love and hope for peace will always be with you. You were my little Sis, my playmate, and my best friend. My heart will heal eventually, but I know you will be waiting for me, and I can hear you calling to me “hey Sissy I love you and I have been waiting for you.” Death is the end of our mortal lives, but the beginning of an eternal. I love you and I miss you terribly.

    • Oh Shirley, I’m so sorry.💔 I know you must be in so much pain. She wasn’t even my sister and I miss her a lot. I’ve been thinking of her today I miss her. 💔😭 She was my grandma when I needed one and she was the best one I could’ve asked for.

  • I am grieved to hear of Diane’s passing! We were neighbors in Sparta, and classmates at Highland High School. Though we rarely saw each other in later years, I have always thought of her as my friend. I am so sorry for your loss. I am happy to know she is with our Lord, and look forward to seeing her in Heaven one day. I am praying for your family. May you find comfort through the Holy Spirit, and in the memories you share.

  • I’ve been thinking so much about you Diane. Even though you were my “ex”sister-in-law, you were my everything. You were my best friend, my mother, my grandma, my sister-in-law and a sister to me. You helped with my kids and my parents. We enjoyed the time we got to spend with you and we enjoyed helping you. You were someone special and always will be! We see dialy reminders of you. We think of you and speak of you often. You may be gone from this old world, but you will never be forgotten! “I wuv you Diane” will forever ring in our hearts! Until we meet again.

  • Missing her already. As I told you before she was my best more than friend over 50 years, family. LOVE you all. Prayers and thoughts. Steffanie
