    I’m so sorry to hear of Diane passing. We were close friends through high school & college and the birth of her 2 boys. Tried to contact her many times over the year. She was so proud of her boys. I hope she had a good life!

    I just read this. I was good friends with Diane when we were in college at Webster and was in her wedding to David Gill. I had always hoped to reconnect with her at some point and am so sad to hear of her passing. She was such a sweet fun and all around great person!! I hope she had a happy life!
