    So very sorry to hear about the passing of Miss Diana.
    I had the pleasure of being her care taker for the past year. She was a true gem, a beautiful person, smart, funny and just so lovely. We had some wonderful times together that I will never forget. Diana loved her family so much and always talked about them. Especially her Grandchildren Amy and Brian. She was so very proud of everything they accomplished.
    She spoke fondly every day about her son Doug and Daughter Pam who were always there to help her. I will really miss her laughter and funny jokes. She will be truly missed.
    Rest in peace my dear Sweet Miss Diana, Your friend, Karen
