  1. Lost a life time friend today and what feels like a sister to me !!! Me an Diana were buddies, she worked for my father for years …Couldn’t ask for a better friend. Now she is up in Heaven. I just wish I had a chance to say goodby and tell her how special she was…I talked to her about a month before her passing not realizing it was the last time until we meet again. How very Sad …Prayers for the family ….I want to come home for the funeral but I can no longer drive due to a disability and my wife just got a full time job…Wish I could be there. Good bye for now my friend. I will miss you deeply.
