    I have such fond memories of my cousin Diane. I always enjoyed the visits she made to Grandma Weem’s house. My thoughts and prayers go out to her children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters. Love you all.

    I was blessed to meet Diane 24 years ago when our sons were on the same basketball team. I was drawn to Diane because of her sincere way of being friendly and honest. She spoke her mind and looked people in the eye when she spoke. She asked me one day why I was so happy. I told her that I had Jesus in my heart. God tugged at her heart that day. I began to befriend her and pray for her. I witnessed her praying the prayer to accept Jesus Christ as Her Lord and Savior right here in my home. She came to church with our family, and so did Charlie and Heather. Her faith grew and even through all the trials she went through, her faith remained strong. The last time I spoke with her she shared of her love for God and all He had done in her life. She talked about Charlie, Heather and the grand kids and how much she loved them. She is in Heaven today in the presence of our Lord. We will miss her smile and caring ways but she is not suffering. The angels are rejoicing she is home. I love you, Heather, Charlie, Collin and Bradley. May God comfort you in her absence. He will never leave you or forsake you. His promises are true.

    I am truly sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a wonderful woman. I pray for peace and understanding during this time and that the Lord will wrap his comforting arms around you and give you the strength and the peace to get through this. I was where you are almost 2yrs ago and I know how terribly heart breaking it is. If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here. Love ya girl and I’m praying for you and your family.
