It's hard to believe it's been five years since you left us. Fall has arrived, a time you always celebrated with such beautiful decorations in your lovely home and created an atmosphere of welcoming warmth. I love you and miss you.

DiAnna was a wonderful friend to me during the many years I lived in Columbia. Her sense of humor, compassion, intelligence and spontaneity for whatever anyone proposed for fun made her a joy to be around. I will surely miss her.
