  1. I always thought of Aunt Diane as the fun, spunky aunt. She always made everything fun, I never got into trouble at her house & she always found ways to defend me when I was going to get into trouble. I even call the police at her house one day, she just laughed it off.
    I often think of her as I play the piano, as I play by ear as well, just not as good as she did.
    I was always amazed of the love that shown from her eyes, the love she had for her dtr, triplets & the Lord. I just pray to be half the women she was. Keep doing what you do best Aunt Diane, play that Golden piano, know you get to kick it up several notches!! Thanks for always defending me, your love & inspiration.

  2. Memories are flooding my heart and mind as I Reminisce, about this most special person about how much she meant to me. She knows what she meant to me! We have had many conversations between ourselves about what she has meant to me.
    It brings me great joy and sadness, both at the same time. To know that she is no longer with us. However; she is playing the golden piano, and singing the “old” gospel hymns at the foot of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
    She always enjoyed, immensely going to all the local nursing homes and singing to all the shut ends and spreading the good news of The Gospel, just as mamaw did.
    Now she is singing to a different crowd of people. I’m so richly admired her desire, to sing to all those in the nursing homes. Thank you for your service, dedication and devotion to all those shut downs. We so need more people that would take more time to do that.
    You will be greatly missed.
    Love 💕 Glenda

  3. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss.
    I had the privilege of becoming friends with Diana during the time I was the manager of President Place apartments.
    She would visit me at the office quite often, many times with lunch or a sweet snack. There were times she would invite me in her home to play her piano and talk about the granddaughters she was so very proud of and loved.Her kindness was extended to many people.
    She was a wonderful Christian lady. We know she’s in Heaven celebrating with our Savior and her family. I will remember you in my prayers.

  4. One of the sweetest ladies I know she will be missed deeply wish my boys got to meet her! Kevin, Amanda, Austin, and Lucas Bolin

  9. Diane helped me take care of my mother and she was a wonderful caregiver. She was patient, kind, and loving.

I will always be indebted to her and grateful for what she did for us.
