    I am so sorry to hear of Dianne’s passing. As kids we spent many hours playing around High River, and were friends in school. I remember her instant readiness to participate in fun or mischeivious adventures. Dianne had many friends, and sadly as many we drifted apart in our adult years. Thanks to Ron and Yvonne, we did meet up a couple of times a few years ago. I am out of town this coming week and will not be able to attend the funeral mass, but I will keep Dianne in my prayers.

  6. Judy (Laycraft) Sutter, Chandler AZ :

    Dear Dianne,

    How we will all miss you. You were a light in our lives with your friendship that never waivered and your willingness to go that extra mile for your friends. From those times when you used to come out with me to the farm and we would ride horses (and yes, those times when we fell off the horse too) to recent times when you travelled south of the border to vacation in the winter and we reconnected, you were always the same loving, wise person. I could always count on having a good laugh with you and feel the warmth of your friendship. I know that you are now in the love of the eternal but to your family who must shoulder their great loss, I pray for their strength and returning joy.
    Dianne was an exceptional person who lived her life with compassion and fun and zest. I am so proud to say she was my friend!
