  8. Dianne was a friend since our teen age years. We still kept in touch with each other and she surely loved ‘Red’ and all her children and grandchildren. She always was so proud of them and talked about them so much in our phone conversations, I felt like I knew them too. You are all so blessed to have her, she loved her family so much and she surely loved Jesus. She fought a good fight and she has won the race now and Dianne, will see you again, in heaven. Love you girl!! Thank you for being my friend.

  9. Sweet sweet family. God bless you as you mourn this loss. The bible says that ‘to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.’ By the testimony of Dianne according to her family, there is no doubt that she is in the presence of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Her faith has become sight. Her pain is gone. Her body is made new. there is no more pain. No more death. No more crying. No more sin and the consequences of sin. She has been washed in the blood of Jesus and when she stepped before God, He accepted her into heaven because her faith was in the Blood of the precious Lamb of God, that washes our sin away. His blood washes us whiter than snow. She knows more about heaven and the trinity of the Godhead and eternity and salvation in the first day, than the greatest theologians and biblical doctors and scholars will ever learn in a life time. We read the word of God, she rests in the bosom of the WORD of God Himself, Jesus. We can rejoice today. We are praying for your strength. Our strength is found in Christ. Trust Him and He will direct your way. He is the way and the light that shines along your way. He is goodness. Dianne knows all about it today!

  10. In times such as this it saddens all our hearts, to see such a wonderful woman leave us, But it is my belief that she has not, God has a perfect plan for her,and part of that plan, i believe is to watch over all of us in spiritual way,of guidance to be with her and all our loved ones,i personally didn’t see her that much these last several years, but every time i did she made me feel loved and peaceful, i will miss our talks on the phone,and her hugs when i got one, until i see you again love ya buddy, thats what she always told me.

  19. Aunt Dianne…..fond memories I hold of her. Beauty and grace are what I remember the most as a child who grew up spending time with her and my crazy cousins Darrell, Joey and Mike. Although we lost touch as the years passed, the love for this family, my family, remained forever in my heart. The spirit of family never dies and those are the ties that bind. We will surely miss her, and my deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers go out to all of those who loved her. The sorrow we all feel fades when we remember that in dying we are born to eternal life in heaven……which is where I know my Auntie Dianne now truly lives. Love to you all.

  24. So shocked when my daughter Sandra sent this to me.. Remember years ago how Larry and I would CB with her and Red while running our paper route. Her CB handle was Secretary, mine..Papergirl and Larry’s Easymoney.. Those were days that we shall never forget.. Such a precious lady. There are no words to say that helps take away the pain of losing your mother, your spouse and friend. What keeps me going is knowing that we will meet again in Heaven. I dream of my mom, she is young, healthy and happy in Heaven. Christi, Red and family my heart felt prayers are with you all..
