Aunt Diane You've struggled for so long but you remained a strong woman. I'll forever cherish all the memories I have with you. I remember I was having a hard time with something personal after I had Nathan ( 16 years ago now)..and though a lot of people didn't understand where I was coming from you looked at me and said "I get it Nicky I understand". I think about that day often and I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to tell you thank you. I believe I told you thank you at the time but it really meant something to me and I just wish I could just thank you and hug you more. Rest easy Aunt Diane we love you Uncle Ulrick, Roslind,Ricki and all the family that my uncle and Aunt created. We're thinking of you love always Nicky, Horace, Shiloh and Nathan

We were so sorry to hear of Diane's passing. Will always remember all the good times we shared when she would visit Newfoundland and visit at the lake, especially our games of cards! Deepest condolences to all the family.

I was so sorry to hear about Diane. I have wonderful memories of her growing up in Humbermouth, Corner Brook, Nfld. Then when she moved to Ontario, she would always visit my parents, Cyril and Peggy Gillam, her aunt and uncle. I love the picture displayed. It is so beautiful. I hope your memories help you all through the coming days. God bless you all.
