So sorry to find out that Diana was ill with cancer and has fallen asleep in death. I had seen her in Meijer and didn't know anything was wrong. She was always soft spoken and concerned about others. I got to know her about 32 years ago. I had studied the Bible with her. We had different beliefs. But whenever I saw her after that it was as if we'd known each other a long time. We'd catch up on things and go our ways. I'll miss our little chats. I know she was a very spiritual woman. May you gain comfort in what Our Creator promises at Psalm 55:22. "Throw your burden on Jehovah and He will sustain you and not let you totter." God has the ability to calm hearts and ease emotions when no one else can. You are in my thoughts.
