Words cannot express our sadness with her passing. When Dianne and I first met all those years ago, she welcomed me into her family as if I was her other daughter. I never felt anything other than love from her. I love how happy she made my dad and how completely she cared for him. Dianne was one of the sweetest, gentlest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. The void in the world without her is immense, but it is through memories of her that will keep us all strong and this time of great sadness. We love you.
