My beautiful aunt, words fail to encompass meaning. There’s gratitude, love, light and joy that I had you in my life. There’s grief, regret, and anger that we have to say goodbye. You leave a void no human can fill. I wish healing and love for everyone who grieves you.

Your absence hurts more than I can bear, but I know you have been warmly welcomed by those have gone on before you in Heaven - I know Daddy is there with wide open arms. My only comfort is that you are no longer suffering, and that you will be among those who will welcome me when my time comes. I love you Diane - and I'm sure now you know exactly how much. You are a beautiful soul, and I was truly blessed to have you as my sister. I know we will again be brought back together., but in the meantime I am missing you terribly.

Diane was vibrant, hilarious, beautiful, spiritual, kind, loving, and SO much more! She was such an amazing and beautiful woman who was loved by all who knew her. I only knew her for a short while but my heart was touched and I am forever changed for the better for knowing her.
I am SO very sorry to say goodbye to her and I will miss her always. This world will not be the same without her bright smile and infectious laughter in it. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who loves her.
