  2. Steve and Daniel,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Diane was a special person. I have fond memories of how in love she was with you, Steve. She thought you were the most wonderful person in the world. Then when she had Daniel, her life was truly complete. How proud she was of you, Daniel and the man you became!!. I am so saddened that I did not know she was ill. I know, she is rejoicing in heaven with her Lord and Savior. Please know our family is praying for you during this time. Sending our love, Philip, Kathy, Phil, Andrew, Katherine, John, Matthew and Timotjy Posey

  7. Dianne was a very special Christian example to many. I have many precious memories of trips & “girl talks” . She was an encourager to many people…always with a smile. I close my eyes & picture in my mind the joy she must feel today. As Christians, we can look forward to the reunion that we will have one day. Separation is hard, but praying God will give you comfort & peace during the days ahead. You have already walked part of that journey during her illness…God will continue to carry you. Love to all of you! Norma Underwood
