Memories Timeline


  1. My thoughts and prayers are with Diane’s family at this time. We worked together at MAHEC for several years. I was a secretary at the family practice residency program. We were good friends, one of the best I had there and she meant a lot to me. We talked quite often especially before she quit working and whenever she came back to visit. I feel very blessed to have called her a friend. God Bless all of you.

  2. Dana and Lisa, I want you to know how much your mother meant to me. She was always such a joy to see. She always had a smile and I just loved to hear her laugh. I remember when we were at MAHEC on Merrimon, I would always look at the schedule to see who was doing xray. I knew when she was on it was going to be a great day. I would come out of there with sore sides everytime from laughing all day. She was such a great inspiration to me these past couple of years the way she kept going. I know it had to be hard on her. She is feeling great now in her new life, and laughing it up. It is so hard to lose your mother. I felt my whole world ended when I lost mine. As it was said today she is your best friend. You will always have your memories and she will live on in your heart. You and your family are in my prayers.

  3. Dearest Family,I was very sorry to read about Diane death. I was a co-worker of hers a MAFHC, she was a wonderfull co-worker, always pleasant and willing to help in any way that she could.
    May God confort you, and may the wonderfull memories of her confort you in the days ahead.
    with sympathy,
    Verna Fore
