  5. When around her I never felt out of place, even though because of my dad we were not around my mom’s side of the family. So it was always awkward when we did come but not when Diane and Eddie was around. Loved her she will be missed. My heart is with y’all in this time of mourning, it isn’t going to be easy but we were all made from the toughest breed thier is and that is the Edna Murphy klan. Love all my cousins. If you need anything and I can I will always be a call away. Forever in my heart Lorene’s daughter Anita

  6. I lived with Diane and her family as a teenager. I shared good times and times that were not so good with my niece and her family. I will miss her smiles and the talks we shared. The family reunions of the future will not be the same without her. May she rest in peace. Diane will be missed.
