Memories Timeline


  1. Dear family, You have my deepest sympathy and that of my family members who were acquainted with Diana. I’m a nurse at Aston Park but I met Diana when she worked at Jackson’s many years ago. We would shop there to get my nephews’ bluejeans and Diana always waited on us. She always greeted us with a smile and a hug. It was such a shock to us when she became a resident at Aston Park and a bigger shock when we learned of her passing. She is in a better place than all of us and she is one of God’s angels now. To Diana’s parents: I’m the nurse at the front desk that always waved at you when you come in to visit Diana. We all will miss Diana greatly at Aston Park HCC. Sincerely, Debbie Parham

  2. Sorry we couldn’t be there. Work got in the way. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Trisha and Donald
