    I was saddened to hear of my cousin Diane. We were just looking at the DVD from our grandpa’s camera on Christmas and laughing at how young we all were at the wedding in Medicine Hat and various shots of us all together.

    My every thought is with the family at this great time of sorrow.

    I hope you are at peace now Diane.

    Love, Layna

    I will always remember the laughs we had at work. You called me princess and even brought me back a mug from New York with “Princess” on it. I will miss you……

    Diane and I shared lots of laughs in our younger years. We had lost touch over the last 15 years or so, but I will always remember her with love. We shared a lot in our teen years and early 20’s. She will be sadly missed. My thoughts and prayers will be with her family in this very difficult time. Diane left this earth way too young! My Deepest Sympathies, Shawn

I have so many great memories and I want to say to the family sorry for your loss, she was one of the most genuine people I know. She is truly the most amazing person in my life.

    I send our deepest sympathy and condolences on behalf of all of us here at Atomik Interiors Inc.

    Diane worked closely with me here at Atomik and has been greatly missed since she left. I am filled with deep sadness knowing that the world has lost yet another great person before their time was called.

    Diane had an infectious laugh and never failed to raise the bar where humor was concerned. I will only remember good times with Diane and I am truly sorry that I will not be able to have new time to create more.

    Diane was a great fit to Atomik and I will continue to miss her.

  9. My deepest sympathies for you Mark, Mr.& Mrs. Desnoyers, Diane’s siblings, and all her family, and many friends. My prayers are with you. I grew up with Diane meeting her in grade two then we became neighbourhood friends. I lost contact with Diane in our late 20’s. I have several fond memories of Diane. One of them being Diane’s big beautiful smile, to go along with her beautiful heart. I have always rememberd when one of our grade school teachers read a story to our class over many weeks, it was a story that Diane had written. It was grade 3 or 4. The story was about a light bulb and a girl. Diane’s story was very entertaining, her story has stuck out, in my mind, for 35 years, the whole class and the teacher were so amazed with Diane’s story. Diane and I shared many hours playing cards growing up, mostly rummy and hearts & crazy 8’s. Diane was a loveable and fun friend, I have always treasured the several laughs and many fond memories we made together. Many blessings for you all. With my deepest sympathies.
