None of us are ever prepared for the kind of great loss that you have just experienced, Greg. And no words can ever adequately describe the kind, gentle beauty that Diane brought to the world around her. Perhaps the only comfort we can take now is the fact that she is in the arms of God, freed from the painful earthly burdens she managed for so many years. Please accept my deepest personal condolences.
