My heart is broken. I will forever miss Diane and her quick wit and dry sense of humor. She was part of our "family" in Washington State. I will hold and cherish all of the memories of her. We had many great times together whether traveling or sharing life's milestones. Always tons of laughter and love. Gary, Miranda & Tommy, holding you in our hearts and praying you can find comfort in the days to come.

I am sorry to hear this tragic news. I will miss Diane and have fond memories of our friendship over the years. As you know Miranda, I am in Florida so I won’t be able to attend the service. Please know my heart hurts for your whole family.
