We are so sorry to hear of Diane`s passing. We really enjoy getting to know you as neighbors in West Fargo trailer court all those years ago. I remember baby sitting for Chris and Duane when they were very young. Our love and sympathy

I am happy to have called Diane a friend. Before I knew who she was by name, I knew her by her smiles. We officially became friends over Facebook when she then invited me over for coffee. I am so sorry for you loss and my heart is with you as you grieve her immediate presence until that day we will meet again.
