Lari and Suzi,
I am sorry for your lose. Your Mother was a fine and dependable lady. She was one of my favorite subs when I was a Trippe School. She seemed to always be in happy spirits and enjoyed life.

Suzie, Lari, and family, my love and prayers are with you during this sad time. Your Mom was a wonderful person and her courage while battling this terrible disease was an inspiration to those who knew and loved her to never take good health for granted. At first, I asked myself, why Diane? She certainly didn't deserve it, but we don't question God. I know that now, he has taken away all of her pain and suffering and has replaced it with good health and everlasting happiness. I pray that God will hold you and comfort you as only He can. Trust in Him and remember the good times and your mother's love and bravery.

I'm sorry to hear if your mama's passing. I've got fond memories of her and mama chatting while we were in Brownies together. They'd have things talked over by the time we finished. She was a sweet lady. You & your family are in my prayers and thoughts for the days to come🙏
