    I offer my heartfelt sympathy especially to Dana, Chris, Josh and Caleb as well as to the rest of the family. I know this was truly unexpected. Diane loved all her family and the times spent with all of you. She (and you) were blessed by your closeness whether attending the boys' sporting events or on beach vacations that she seemed to love so much. God bless you and you must adjust to her not being here. Treasure the good memories you made together throughout the years, and know she'll always be in your hearts.
