Diane will be missed by her classmates of 1965. It was nice to see her return to Aurora and make the last several get togethers of the class. She was a friend to all who knew her. She is now in Heaven with both her fathers and is now making a home for her family for when they all come home.

Dear Aunt Mildred and Janice: We are so sorry to hear of Diane's passing. We thought of you and prayed for you today as you were in the service for Diane. We so wish there were not so many miles between us. Nebraska must seem like the other side of the earth to you, it does to us today. May God draw you near and comfort you both.

I was sorry to hear about Diane's death. I worked with Diane in Chesterfield County, and got to know her as a very caring person. Diane always spoke of her family in a loving way. I pray God's peace be with you and the rest of your family.

I just learned of Diane's passing. May peace continue to be with her family and friends. As a fellow teacher who worked with her in Chesterfield, VA, I enjoyed watching her be creative and find new and inspiring ways to make learning fun for her students!
