Too numerous to mention are all those “D” called her own. It is sufficient to say that her definition of family was not limited by mere genealogy.
It is impossible to describe in so few words the depth and breadth of D’s life, but two things were evident to all who knew her. D always remembered where she came from and never forgot where she was going. Her love for kin was surpassed only by her love of God.
Kind thanks are owed to the many that cared for and attended to DiAnne. Of special mention are her cousins, Mr. Ernest “Butch” Migues and Ms. Dixie Robinson. The patience and loving care you showed for your own has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated by those who, like you, had the pleasure of calling her “D.”
