  1. I will surely miss my Aunt Diane. With her living in Texas, we didn’t get to see her nearly as much as the rest of the family growing up. Instead, it was a big event and quite the reason for excitement when she would come to town. So, to me as a kid, she was a reason to celebrate. As I got older, it was no less dear when I got a chance to visit with her when she was in town. And, I got to know just what a reason she was to celebrate. Our last conversation of substance was about raising goats, and she and I shared an affinity for the creatures. Not everybody is a goat lover. My thoughts are with my Dad, her brother. And, I, of course, am thinking of My Uncle Johnny, one of the kindest men I have ever known; my cousin Mandy, the epitome of sweetness and a beautiful smile; and my cousin Terry, a “partner in crime” at one time or another and a good man all around; and their families. I love you all!

  2. I will always remember the fun times we had baking and making cake decorations, She was a very talented person. She made some beautiful leaded glass pictures and really loved working huge complicated puzzles. She loved and will be sorely missed by everyone.
