    Diane was genuinely a kind and giving person. She and Stack would often be at birthday parties for our sons, and they were a joy to be around. I remember Shawn’s mom and dad talking about the trips they would all take together.

    She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

    The Magic of a Mother’s Touch

    There’s magic in your Mother’s touch,
    and sunshine in her smile.
    There’s love in everything she does
    to make your lives worthwhile.
    You can find both hope and courage
    Just by looking in her eyes.
    Her laughter is a source of joy,
    her works are warm and wise.
    There is a kindness and compassion
    to be found in her embrace,
    and you see the light of heaven
    shining from your Mother’s face.
