    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.

    I will always remember Diane, for her wit, charm and honesty. Although we never met in person I felt a true connection to her. She was my island sister.
    Prayers are being sent to the family during this difficult time.

    Diane enriched the lives of more people than will ever be known, including my own. Her humor, her strength and her compassion were appreciated and will not be forgotten, even by those like me who never met her face to face.

    I am so very, very sorry for the loss of your Mother and sister. Diane was a true inspiration to so many with her strength and humour. My thoughts are with you. Love Bianca.

    Diane and I worked together for a couple of years at the bookstore at the lighthouse. We became more than co-workers, we became friends. We discovered we shared the same interests in books and music, and traded books with each other that we thought the other would like.
    She continued working during her first bout with cancer even though she said there were days after chemo that she could barely get out of bed. But at work, she continued to serve our customers with a smile and, except for her baldness which she gaily flaunted; no one would have suspected a thing.
    After we each left our jobs this past year, we didn’t see each other much, but Diane kept many of her friends updated via e-mail. She last visited me around the beginning of January, and again, she still had that positive attitude and looked like she was living her life to the maximum possible, although she was very grateful for Kathryn’s help.
    As others also have said, I will miss her wit, charm and intelligence.

    To Diane’s family,
    I knew Diane during her time in Greece, NY. She was a joy to know and remember throughout my years away from New York. I trust you will have her strength in you she gave, especially to those close to her.
