    Jenny and Family: I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very special lady! I remember going to your house after school and your mom would have snacks and drinks all lined up in the fridge for you packaged in individual containers. This always amazed me. She was always so happy and smiling whenever I saw her. She will be missed by many.

  5. Shelley Markley says:

    I will miss being a sub for you and my Mothers’ card club.
    You were always happy, and smiling every time I saw you.
    Dianne will truly be missed by all that knew her.
    Shelley M.
