Diane lived a life walking hand in hand with the Lord. She was the mortar that has held the bricks of the Schmidt Family together for decades. She has laid the foundation for everyone, not only in this immediate family, but extended as well, and shown us all the path of love, laughter, and joy. Her memory lives on within us all in the memories we all share. This is not goodbye, it is see you later. We love you more!
