To the Weems/Cobb/Cody Family,
We,the Ryan/Allen family were very saddened to hear about Diane's homegoing. She had such a beautiful personality and a smile that would light up a room. May you take comfort in the Word of God which tells us that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Remember this, God is able to wipe every tear from your eyes and give you the strength you'll need to hold on to His unchanging hand, for He alone knows just how much you're able to bear. Keeping you all covered in prayer during this difficult time.

To my Family, Sherell/Larry, Nicole, Dawn/James, Lynell/Rev CLay, Rev. Alfred/Verline and grandchildren, words cannot express at this time the sadness of the passing of our loving Diane. A 'devote' and 'dedicated' mother, sister and a 'faithful' and 'true' friend. To look at her picture relives her life of her 'bubbly' spirit and her smile. Knowing her for 53+ years, I have never seen her angry. Always willing to aid and assist whoever and whenever. Our hearts are heavy but one of the assurances that I have is, because of how she lived her life, the picture that I have now is,she's, 'Safe in the arms of Jesus'. Being an excellent mentor, I asked that you will follow in her footsteps. My prayers, asking that God will Order your steps in His words and that He will strengthen you.I know it's extremely hard but I am a witness, He has not left you and He NEVER WILL..for,' He WILL NEVER LEAVE OR FORSAKE YOU'...'HE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU.' Much LOVE, unceasing PRAYERS...God Bless, Cuz, CarrollE. LynnE.
