    Diana will always be my “best friend” – she was my inspiration, my guide, my goofball friend, my loyal and devoted secret-keeper, my no-nonsense/no BS straight talker, my sister of my heart. Diana was Amanda’s Godmother, and she will be missed every day – for the rest of our days. Forever and always, I love you my friend.

    Forever in my heart and just on the other side of the veil. You were taken too soon from this earthly life. The body can be taken but the soul never ever dies or diminishes. Now you’re off to fulfill your continuing destiny. Those who love you know that you will visit often, advise, and help guide our paths.

    Diana, you made my first day at Lau Lane special in greeting me in the elevator up to the 17th floor and encouraging me and making me feel accepted. We laughed at so many things and shared stories and certain events. You are loved Diana and one day we will be together again.

    Diana, you were my first ‘best friend’, and building the same house next to each other was my greatest gift of friendship. To have shared our young lives parallel to each other in the same spaces, just in different circles due to age, only God could gift me with your friendship. You introduced me to the love of all things coffee, and life has never been the same thanks to you precious and beautiful one. Thank you for your love, your acxeptance, your laughter, your smile, all things you.💜 Thank you for being such a wonderful auntie to my boy and my baby girl, forever her ‘di-di’. You are loved deeply, treasured always, forever in my heart and mind. I love you sweet friend.❤️
