    She always had a smile on her face. Fred and Lorene and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. There are no words that will remove the pain you all are feeling. If I can do anything to help in the coming days, please call or message me. Love you and praying for you.

    Dear sweet Dianne, she will be truly missed. She and my late husband, John, were first cousins and during his long illness she visited often always bringing him a freshly baked skillet of her delicious cornbread, which he loved. She will be missed for her smiling face and generous nature. My heartfelt sympathy goes to her family and friends. They are in my thoughts and prayers.

    What a loss fro us on earth, but such a gain for those in Heaven. She was a remarkable woman. She was always beautiful on the outside as well as on the inside. Rene, Fred, I wish I cold help you through your pain. She was always beside you in life, so shall be for now. She loved you both more than anything. Always remember that. I love you both and call me if you need me.
