So sorry for your loss. I will miss her calls to help her with her computer. And boy did she like to talk! 10 mins to fix her computer and another 1/2 hour gabbing.. :) She was a very special lady!

My deepest condolences to her family and friends. I only got to know Diane in the past few years as we were both trying to find answers to our family tree questions. As first cousins, we never had the opportunity to know each other growing up but over the past few years we have enjoyed a fun relationship. I will miss her emails, texts and calls.

Rest well dear cousin! You will be missed.

My deepest sympathy to Diane's family:
Diane's mom and my grandmother were sisters. I saw Diane and the rest of her brothers and sister some when we were growing up. Diane and my mom, Aunt Sis, kept in touch for years, and I continued writing to her after my mom passed.
I was so sorry to hear about her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all

I just wanted to pass along my condolences. I lost my mom 6 years ago and it was not an easy time. I can say that it does become easier over time, because our loved ones are always with us in our hearts and thoughts. My families thoughts and prayers go out to you at this difficult time. Again sorry for your lose.

I had the pleasure of working with Diane for over 20 years and being her friend for about 45 years. We had just talked a few weeks ago about going to lunch when the weather got a little nicer, she was always a dear friend. I know her pain has ended & she is now with her husband Joe. But our talks and friendship will be severely missed. R.I.P. Di.

I had sent a message of Condolences to this page a few days ago, however, I looked for it just now and it wasn't there. I did something wrong.
Your Mom was a special friend, she will be missed by all of us. I just talked with her just a few weeks ago and she and I were looking forward to our next phone conversation.
I'm so sorry that I won't get to speak with her again.
We hope that you will find peace in knowing that she is not sick anymore and that she will now be reunited with her beloved Joe for eternity.
The Hutson Family
