    Diana, our deepest and heartfelt sympathy go out to you and your family. Your mom was like my second mom, I think I spent as much time at your house as at my own. I have such fond and wonderful memories of your mom. From going to your house after school and making home made fries and watching Peyton Place with her. Your mom got me into watching wrestling and convincing me it was real. Your mom loved her country music and I enjoyed sharing all the times when your family would bring out the guitars and sing. Your mom was strong and fought right to the end. Those who we love don’t go away. They walk beside us and are in our hearts and memories everyday. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult and sad time.
