    I knew Diane back in high school. I used to walk home with her after school and she would always give me juice to drink on the way home. Then when she learned to drive she would drive home. We went to a new years eve party once and we had a blast. I will always remeber the good times we had. She may be gone from us but she will not be forgotten about by us. Miss you Diane.

    Janet, Debbie, Dale and Tyronne, Diane will be greatly missed. Diane had such a contagious smile, and was such a warm person. Sometimes we can't help but wonder WHY, when things like this happen. Trust in the Lord and trust that Diane is resting comfortably in the arms of Jesus! We're here if you need anything.
