It is with great sadness that I visited Diannes Memorial and tributes. The world is not the same. There is an emptyness within me that she is not here. I have yet to believe it. She was the strong one never quit inspirational. We were young and she led the way. Though trouble times; I always missed her. You her family I wish you peace and love. These tributes are comforting warm and well deserved.Dianne shined everywhere she went and impacted those touched by her. I am grateful to be one. I love and miss you. Chasing Clouds...
