To Ronnie, Dalissa, Carolyn"Boots"
My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I am heartbroken with untimely passing of my friend. Diane and I met at Scotts Rosenwald Elementary School. I was a 1st grader, she a 2nd grader. We clicked and became fast friends. We shared a friendship that spanned many years. Although we lived in different states and seldom saw each other we kept in touch by phone and visits, when able. No matter how long the time that we did not see or talk to each other when we did it was just like we had never been apart. I was overjoyed when she and Ronnie attended my 70th birthday. I loved Diane and she loved me and I will miss her. May God heal your hearts in your loss and give you peace.
