    Ricky, Shawn, Eric, Chad and your families, we are so sad that Dianne has passed. She was a wonderful person, always, in all ways. I was heart broken when you all moved to FL, but we stayed in touch as best we could, and even more so the past few years. May she now rest in the peace she has earned. Love to you all. Kathy & Bob

    My family and I want to send our deepest sympathies as you know she was like my 2nd Mom and she treated me like her 4th kid. Memories of the 25 years that she was involved in my life are coming back and it makes me smile. One funny memory is when she was doing hair, she decided to give both me and Shawn a perm it was pretty funny when we were walking down the street with a full perm. 😂

    I am sorry life got in the way of seeing you all more and talking more, I wish I got to tell her how I felt. Thank god for FB it allowed me to at least communicate that way with her from time to time..


    love to you all
    Shawn Donnelly.
