I am so sorry to hear of Diane's passing. She always had a smile on her face and always shared stories of her children and grandchildren. Her loyal devotion to her family was with passion, enthusiasm and pure love. I remember one time after she had finished with my hair, she invited me to watch Diandra and Kenny surprise their kids with a Disney trip. It was amazing. This is what Diane was like. This is what she did. Embracing, welcoming and living life. Rest In Peace my friend. Jeanne Rauscher
