    My thoughts and prayers go out to her Husband and Children and Grandchildren, and also to her family. I knew Diane only for a short while, she touched my heart, and her and I had many good talks together about life, and what we may have been going through at the time. She was a Great Friend and she will be missed.

    She was my pen-friend for a short time about 30 years ago. After my one and only Canada holiday until now.
    I am very sad, and found this message by chance right now and I cannot believe it. I have always hoped that we could meet one day; we only sent each other photos.
    My prayers and best wishes to her, wherever she may be now, and to her family. Petra Kloos-Gössel and Family
