    Ray and Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I saw Diane not long ago at CVS and talked with her. She was always a pleasure to see at the bank. All of you will be in prayers.

    Ray, Tracy and Mark,
    I hope you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Diane was a very special lady and she will be missed by her many friends. I have a lot of good memories of talking to her at Carpet Liquidators. She could always make me laugh and had more energy than anyone I knew. She will be greatly missed.
