When I was a kid, I loved going to your Mom’s to play Pokeno. She was an excellent hostess who made us all feel welcome. Always had fun at her gatherings.

We always asked Diane to bring her delicious pecan pie to all our holiday dinners. She also brought her wonderful sense of humor. We will all miss her so much.
