Loni, Tim, Maurice, and other family - I am truly sorry to here about Diane's passing. Diane was indeed a kind and wonderful person - one of the few that I would often refer to as "mom". Diane will be missed but she will never be forgotten. (Matthew 5:4 - Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.)
