Jim, My name is Elaine Hoogeboom. I was one of Diane's student. I am so sorry to hear of her death. It was in a news letter I happened to be reading. She meant so much to me. So sorry to hear this.

I was shocked and saddened to read about our loss of Diane. Her passing will leave a great void in this community. Diane was my professor in the 1970s and was one of the few faculty members who was passionate about the need to respect and care for the dignity of our elders.... which led me to my pursuit of a degree in Gerontology. It is an honor for me to serve on the LaVande Board in the School of Social Work to carry on her desire to educate SW professionals, and honor her legacy. She was spirited and full of life. We are better people because we had her in our lives, and I was fortunate to have her as a mentor.

I am so sorry to hear this news. Diane and Tom were leaders in our ukulele group, the PT Strummers. They were skilled players, lively and full of fun. She will be missed! Condolences to Tom. I look forward to seeing you when you return.

Jim, Diane was not only a dear friend but also a mentor. I will miss our coffee club - and our lively political conversations. I will also miss her honesty and her great sense of humor. I can still hear her laugh. She always had a great laugh.
