    This does not seem possible. I loved your whole family especially your mom and dad! You taught me how to back a trailer up, spread manure and construct an awesome fire pit. You will never be forgotten. Your energy and giving personality was endless. RIP Diana

    We enjoyed her company and her “go for it “ fun loving attitude! She was always so thoughtful and caring to all that she met. She loved her animals so very much. We were lucky to have been considered her friend. She even visited us here in Arizona. We will always have those great memories of her.
