Our hearts are sadden to hear of Diane's transition with the Lord. Truly a great soldier of the Lord and angel has left a void in our lives. Her beautiful smile, laughter and kind words will never be forgotten. We send our love and deepest sympathy to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I pray God Strengthen the family sending His peace and courage in the days to come. Take your rest thou good and faithful soldier and long time friend. May you rest in the arms of Jesus our Lord and Saviour. God Bless The Family.!!
