to all Dianas Family, belated condolences to you all, the last time I saw Diana was at least 22 years ago, she grew up with my Sister and her Dad Richard was our family Doctor, Ricky and I were friends as teeneagers all in the days of Park Road Staines England. My mother was a great family friend with Richard and Constance..Mabel and John Dunkley. on behalf of all our family I am sending this note, I learnt of her demise while trawling the Internet and wanted to let you know that from afar she will never be forgotten.My own Mother passed 20 years ago and never a day passes that I dont miss her. Thank you for sharing these wonderful photographic memories for us all to keep Diana close to us .Warmest wishes & Kindest regards Lynn Lockhart (nee Dunkley), strangely I also live in Norwich ...Norfolk UK.
To Diana's family...deepest condolences for your loss. We are long-time guests of Steamboat and just learned of her passing as we went to make reservations for our 25th wedding anniversary celebration. We are so very sad that our most favorite Steamboat person has passed, but comforted by memories of her wonderful spirit, unending kindness, and beautiful smiling face. Our prayers are with you.
Diana touched my families hearts each time we stayed at the Steamboat Inn. She had a heart of gold and a personality to light up a room. God bless her and her family.
Peter and family,
We all remember Diana helping our grandmother with her dresses and great times at Shenecossett Beach years ago. So sorry for your loss.
Dear Nikki,Peter,Rich and family, I meet your Mom when we worked together at the Mystic Seaport and from that moment on, we became great friends. As I read the messages in the guest book I realized how many people this beautiful soul touched...Diana loved the symbol of the sun and one day I remember asking her why she loved the Sun so much and she replied," It makes me happy! Diana's warmth and shining light of her soul embraced all of us. And that light will shine forever...Your in our prayers, DiAnn and Bob Morrison, Clayton, North Carolina

Diana was, at first, like another mother to me, then she was my boss, and finally, my friend. She was always ready to chat and offer a cup of tea, or a glass of wine! She will be missed, but I am thankful that she was part of my life for more than 40 years.
Rich, Peter and Nikki -

Dearest Rich, Peter, and Nikki,
Diana has always been such a big part of our hearts in England and I loved to listen to all of her stories. Diana had the kindest heart and such a beautiful spirit and was such fun to be with. I so wish that I could be more helpful in your time of loss, and I will be thinking of you all and Diana on Sunday. I aim to visit on Mother's Day to give you all a hug. I am going to miss Diana more than you know. My father, Peter, is shocked, and trying to be strong and brave and philosophical. I will be spending the day with him on Sunday, as I know he will find this very difficult, as will Ricky. David and I had such a wonderful holiday in Florida with Diana and Peter, who looked after us with such love.
I am going to miss Diana and how she brought us all together, and I hope the connection continues. David and I send you all our love at this very sad time.
May the gentle sun always shine on her.
Much love to you all,
Your Mom will be missed by everyone. Kathy and I will certainly miss our morning breakfast chats with her at the Steamboat Inn. Our visits will not be the same. Our prayer for Diana and her family.
So sorry for your loss. My wife and I looked forward to seeing her every time we went to the Steamboat. We will miss our talks in the morning during breakfast. Talking with her was a wonderful way to start the day and she always made our visits to Mystic extra special. We will miss her.
To Peter and his family..keeping you in our thoughts and wishing you strength and ultimately peace through this trying time.
What a delight it was to know Diana. She loved to make people happy. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I met Diana years ago when she made a wonderful suit and tie for me when I was doing a play,and we had many long chats during the fittings. She was a lovely and talented lady, and you are truly blessed to have her in your lives. God bless.
