  7. Your life has impacted many around me, therefore your life had profound meaning in my own life.

    I did not know you well, however, your spirited impact on our relationship is something that I will never forget.

  9. Give Love to her children Children need love everyday
    Give love to the children Guide them on their way
    Love’s like a burning flame consumes all that stands in the way

    Love is the only power on earth to take all the fear away
    GIVE LOVE TO THE CHILDREN set the children free
    To make their own decisions then they will clearly see
    Love is the sun the moon and the stars love is a golden ring

    Love is the one thing the whole world desires be it beggar or king
    GIVE LOVE TO THE CHILDREN youth has not long to stay
    Love is a long term investment the best you will find any day

    Love like the rising sun takes all the darkness away
    Our children will tell their children and their childrens children will say
    Give love to the children they are our crock of gold
    and if perchance they ever stray they will come back to the fold

    Give love to the children the children of today
    Give love to the children and love will come to stay.

  11. I DIDN’T KNOW DIANE WELL, BUT REMEMBER HER OUTGOING PERSONALITY. THOSE ARE HARD TO FIND. IT REALLY STUNNED ME TO SEE HER IN THE PAPER. I WANT TO TELL HER CHILDREN TO BE STRONG, AND KNOW THAT SHE IS ALWAYS WITH THEM. I LOST MY MOM A YEAR AND A HALF AGO, AND IT IS NOT EASY. GOD IS GOOD THOUGH, AND WILL SEE YOU THROUGH. ALL MY LOVE AND PRAYERS TO ALL THE FRIENDS AND FAMILY
