Diane and I were friends for over 40 years. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She was the most kind hearted, hard working person I have ever met, with a very deep devotion to her family. My heart goes out to them. This is a terrible loss of a very special person. I will never forget her.
I will miss my dear friend with every passing season. I moved next door three years ago Oct. 28. I had finally found my soul mate, the Lucy to my Ethel. We shared the same passions for gardening, DIY and getting a deal on MarketPlace. She would do anything for someone she loves. Her smile, her generosity and sweet disposition will truly be missed. Our sympathies are with her beloved Pat and the children that loved her. The Leonard family, Sandy, Bill, Luke, Jessica and Captain Jack
