Add My Condolences

Diane was a good neighbor and friend. I miss our long chats in the driveway... or front porch or patio. She was always bragging about her kids and grandkids. And I never minded Wayne's "Hi Honey" greetings to her favorite little pup. May you know the comfort of Jesus as He carries you through your grief. We will remember you in our prayers.
