    What a lovely picture and obituary for a most lovely woman and dearest friend. I have a hole in my heart, but it is slowly to be filled with every memory of the great times and confidences we shared. My condolences to all of the family as you go through this time of acceptance. Though a part of life, it is oh, so difficult. Feel my hugs remotely, and keep me in the wings of your family happenings. You have always been so good at knowing how much Diane meant to me.
