So sorry for our loss of Diane. I had not seen her but once in many years but I have fond memories of her June and Jackie Dale catching the bus with us a few times when they spent the night with their grandparents Fred and Grace Reaper. There is a hole left in our life when an acquaintance passes even if we didn't know them well. She will be missed. I understand the loss of a loved one and you all are in my prayers and thoughts at this time.

Jack, Jacky and family, we were so sorry to hear that Diane has lost the fight, but know she has won the race. Although we do not grieve as those who have no hope, but pray for your family as you go through this difficult transition. We love you all and share your pain. We are out of town or we would be there with you.
Love, Bobby and Danna

Larry, Jack, June, and Jackie. Please accept my sincerest condolences. I will always remember Diane as a strong, intelligent, resourceful, and independent minded young woman. Her smile could fill a room and her heart would embrace everyone in it. Her energy and exuberant love of life infected us all, and made each one of us want to be near her. You all have my deepest sympathy and respect.
