Diane was a true friend to me in high school. A true friend does not come into your life many times but she was one.

I went to school in Pilot Rock from mid-fourth grade to mid seventh grade. For some reason Diane face stands out in my mind. I knew as soon as I saw her picture in the obit, I knew her, so yes I read about her life and god taking her. If our family had stayed in Pilot Rock I would have graduated with her. Rest in peace Diane and maybe you her family feel god's arms around you as you remember the good times and the love of Diane all around you today.

Diane, being one year ahead of me, was like a big sister to me. Her younger sister, Nancy, was my friend and classmate. May Diane's family know how special she was to many of us. Diane, rest in peace. May God bless her family and grant them peace.
