On Behalf of CL-Diane's Family...
Fri, 03-28-2003 - 10:23pm
On Belhalf of my father, my sister and myself, I would like to thank you all for the outpouring of love and prayers for my mother. The service was today and the priest pointed out this is the first time he honored a community leader from a message board. You were all very special to her, and I'm sure she has been truly touched by all of your kind words, I know we all have been. I have been printing out your posts and sharing them with my family. She spoke of the board and all of her friends there everyday (especially Cee, her sister separated from her at birth ;) ) I received a copy of the chat you all had about her and I know many of you were concerned about whether she suffered or not. She did not suffer, she died very quickly and as far as we know, she did not feel any pain. It was so nice to see representives (Viz and Heide) at the mass. Without all of you, she may have never gotten to reach many of her goals. I thank you, and I'm sure she misses you.

Thank you Lee Anne for the post. So sweet to hear from the family. She was a wonderful person. I will always remember how much she spoke of her children, grandchildren and her husband. Her family meant everything to her. Alot of us couldn't have made it many times through our day if it wasn't for her. Thank you and your family for sharing her with us.

Thank you again for the post, HUGS! Chara :-)

I thank you so much for keeping us informed and allowing us to share a wonderful lady. I will never forget first meeting Diane...she was such an inspiration to me. I remember being so in awe of her taking the time to respond to ME. I soon found out how genuine she was. Being a community leader with her was wonderful...she had such a way with words, and always seemed to know the right way to say just the right thing. I envied her for that!

My day lillies are starting to sprout...I planted them 2 years ago, and told Diane I would always think of her when I see them...they had Chicago in the name!

Take care of yourselves, and thank you again...

Thank you so much for sharing this LeeAnne and thank you for sharing your mom. She was a wonderful woman who picked me up and dusted me off many, many times. Thank you for thinking of us.

Though we never met face to face, I shall always remember Diane as one of my dearest friends on this earth. I've been away from the board for a very long while, but every once in awhile, I'd get a wonderful note from her in her e-mail. I still can't believe this wonderful lady is no longer with us.

She left us on my Birthday -- I know I shall think of her every day, but on that day, every year, most of all.

Bless you and all her family...
