    I am so grateful that I lived near Diana for so many years and got to know her well. She was always the sweetest and most humble person. Although she was quiet and tried to be unassuming, she was radiant, funny and a delight to spend time with. She has been a nice compliment to Pete. We will miss such a wonderful woman here on Earth, but she will fit in well in Heaven.

    Dear Pete and all your lovely family.
    Sending you all Gods love at this very difficult time.
    What a beautiful soul Diana was, and a friend of mine for 53 years. We were 11 when we met!
    I feel so sad at her passing, but knowing she is being so looked after and in such a wonderful place, makes it more bearable.
    I was playing the album" The Plan" on the day of her passing, but didn't know at that time that she had passed.
    God Bless you all.
    Karen and Ken.

    Diana was one of the most caring, loving and sweetest woman I had the pleasure of having in my life. Her thoughtfulness was something I truly admired as well. She treated friends of family as family themselves. She always made me laugh when I heard her say “Chrisss” (if you know, you know).

    - Dennis Wieder

    You will be so missed at JVS, you were always so kind, thoughtful and pleasant to talk with. I just noticed your middle name is Grace...I don't think that is a coincidence <3
