Love and Prayers to you Tracey Sweet and Family . Dianne was a great basketball player and she played the game with much talent and her heart was in every game . It would be fair to say she loved the sport . She was more than a basketball lover she loved her family and people . She was always fair and treated everyone with respect and dignity. Keep her memories alive by continuing to stay together as a family . Your final shot landed you into Gods bosom is my prayer.
