Mark, Please know that you and your family are in my prayers. I met a colleague at a dental workshop and inquired about you. I am deeply moved by your loss. Sincerely, Sam
Diane and I were great friends. One high school summer we were inseparable. We applied for our first job together at McDonald's. We explained that due to our busy schedules were realized we were only available from 2-4 Tuesdays and Thursdays -- in the summer! And that we had to work our shifts together. We were serious. We never got a call back :-) So sorry to hear you are gone Diane, I heard a few weeks ago and am still stunned and sad. Love, Michaela
I called her Dreo. I met her in jr. high. She was a very close friend. I just found out this night that she passed. I am so saddened. She talked about her boys and her husband when we would chat. I am so sorry for this loss. I am actually speachless. My sincere sympathy and heartfelt best wishes to her family and friends.
I just found out the Diane passed away. I went to Ivanhoe Jr. high with her and then on to Redwood High School in Visalia. Since graduating high school, we saw each other over the years at reunions. We are having our 35th high school reunion this weekend, and that's what prompted me to see what see was up too. I was surprised to find out about her battle with cancer. My prayers go out to her family.
I am at a total loss for words. Found out yesterday that Dreo is no longer with us. When I didn't hear from her over the last 6-8 months I should have made contact. Darn busy lives. Di was as beautiful on the inside as on the outside and one of very few people that truly made a difference to me as a college student and young adult. I am fussy- she fit the bill- smart,honest, articulate and fun. She made her family her priority and all those that came into contact with her knew she was special. The world has lost an incredibly special woman. Your Alpha Phi sisters and I will miss you.
Love you, Jacque
Dear Mark, Matty, and AJ-
Diane was such a beautiful and strong woman. She so loved you all and I feel very fortunate that I was able to get to know her so well when the boys were young. She had such a passion for life, being a mother, and always giving 110%. Most of my memories are with her and Matty or with Matty and AJ. She loved those boys and was a fantastic mom. She will be missed! You are always in my thoughts.
Mark, AJ, and Matty
I am saddened to hear of Lady Di's passing. A friend for the last 35 years, she will always be remembered as generous and compassionate ... touching everyone she met in a special way.
As stated by my sorority sisters earlier, Di will be missed by all. Her smile was always part of you and she lit up a room. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
Di was a great friend to all at our Alpha Phi sorority in Missoula, MT. We had so much fun. I can hear her laugh in my mind to this day. I am so sorry for everyone's loss. Too young with so much to offer.
My memories of my sorority sister Di are of that smile and the beautiful person she was inside and out. She was someone I always looked up to. I was shocked and saddened this morning when I heard the news. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel.
As a sorority sister of Di's from the U of Montana, I am greatly saddened by her passing.I will always have great memories of our raucous times in college! In short , she was a blast to be around . She taught me that it was ok to march to a different drummer..My thoughts and prayers go out to the family! She will be sorely missed!
You are such a great person and dentist, and we are so sorry about Diane. Our thoughts are with you and your kids, and we promise to never turn down another x-ray!!!
Mark ,AJ, Matty and Leigh, being uncle and 'aunt' to Diane was an honor. Even as a child she was a most extraordinary person who made every single person she met feel very very special. And she REALLY did care for each one. Our hearts are breaking for you. What a gift it was for us to have been a part of her family. Brandon and Hope have wonderful memories of Diane through the years. May peace and comfort surround you.
I met Di at Dr. Foster's retirement gathering. She was a striking presence... warm, gracious, and welcoming to Kris and me as though we long among her wider family of friends. I can't pretend to know your loss, but know that she entered our hearts and will be sorely missed. Our deep sympathy to you and your family.
May God comfort your heart and each family members'. And fill with hear memories.

Mark - We are saddened to hear of the loss of Di. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Love, Ron, Lynn, Tricia, Sarah & Matt Hinck
I first met Di in 1991, back when we all worked at Alex Brown- she was always a fun, dynamic and engaging friend. I remember the day she announced, " I'm dating this great guy- hes a dentist!" We lost touch over the years until 2000 until we met again - met Mark again- met more friends through them as family and learned more about life from her....
Her devotion to her children and her husband will always be remembered and respected...she is truly their guiding spirit.
Suzie, Molly, Mack Carter and I will miss her smile but always have her spirit.
May the grace by which we knew you live on here as it follows you into Eternity...
Loving thoughts to your Dear Family.
Bobby,Natascha,Monet, and Chloe Weir

Mark, Andrew, Matthew & extended family - My sincere condolences for the loss of your Di. She was an amazing mother & person. Words cannot express..sorrow, disbelief, tragedy, full life too short..
