You were one of a kind

“Dear Diane, I remember talking to you every day at the bookstore at EGCC. You were such a nice lady. Always full of joy, smiling and brightening our day with kind words. I would come in there every day, just to speak to you because that's just how much of an impact you had. I remember one day standing in there talking to you and I was going on about my new little grandbaby. Then I pulled out her picture to show her to you, and you said, "That is my great niece Chasity." From that moment on, I greated you with a hug and made it my business to come there to talk to you every single day. I miss your warm spirit and beautiful smile. Diane, you have been deeply missed. Much love my dear friend, Much love! 😢”
