  1. I knew Diana through Meezer Junction on Catster.com. Theo was friends w/my Sasha, Sharif & Morticia and he was just NUTS. But it was really Diana’s shining PURRRsonality and great sense of humor. She will be missed and it’ll leave a HUGE hole in the group.

    All my kitties & I are purring for & thinking of her family at this sad time.

    I feel privileged to have known her.

  3. I am blessed to have known Diana’s humor and enduring positive spirit through her voice for Theo on Catster, as well as through e-mail. She was a dear friend and will be dearly missed. My deepest sympathy to all her family, including Theo.

  4. I hope you know how much you were loved and adored, Diana! I miss you so much, but at the same time I am glad your pain is now over, and I am so incredibly grateful for all the wonderful, magical and joyful art you gave to us. I am so glad we got to know each other a little better this past year, and exchanged cute cards and emails off of Catster too. So many times and in so many ways, you lifted our spirits and made us laugh, in sad times as well as happy times, and you truly were a one in a millon human being, and a shining example to others. Roger and Humphrey and I send all of our love to you, and to Theo and your family. Our deepest condolences, and I am so very grateful I knew you – you were a blessing to so many, and we all love you so very much.

  5. I was so sad to hear of Diana’s passing. Her warm and caring nature will never be forgotten and she will be sorely missed. Catster will never be the same without her unique humour through Theo her much loved meezer.
    Rest in peace Diana, until you all meet again.

  6. Dearest Sister,
    Life stole from us many precious things when we were too little to fix them. When our hearts split apart, so did we. I hope you can see from heaven my tears and regret for the wasted years. I loved you and never said it, but I pray you know it now. You are truly free-fly happy and be at peace, pain free and joyous at last.
    George

  7. Godspeed sweet friend, your sense of humor brought smiles to so many lives. Crazy Theo’s antics along with your artwork could lighten any mood. Even though I knew you would not be with us for long it does not make it any easier to say goodbye. I send big hugs to your children as they mourn. Fly high and free, no pain, no restrictions. You are with each of us, in our hearts. We will always love you!

  10. Dear Monica and David, Thoughts are prayers are with you now and always. You Mom was a wonderful lady with a true love of her children and her beloved pets, past and present. Her sense of humor and love of life was evident with the many moments we shared. As one of her many Catster/Dogster friends, your Mom helped me through the loss of my beloved Dane Diesel Blue. Her kind words and wonderful notes and funny photos of her Krazy Theo made the dark moments not so dark.

    May the memories of her love for you both comfort you during this most difficult time.

    Love, Fancy

  19. Dear Monica and David, I had the greatest pleasure of meeting your Mother, Diana in person. Having stayed with Diana and David in October 09. The moment I met Diana and David I knew this was a very Special family.

  20. Like so many others, I never got to meet Diana face to face. However, you certainly can get to “know” people in other ways – in Diana’s case through her sense of humor, creativity, positive outlook on life, and good spirit towards others. Diana was a Catster and Facebook friend to many of us. She will be sorely missed…but remembered by all.

  21. Dear Monica, David, and Family,

    I send you my deepest sympathy regarding the death of your beloved mother. I really don’t need to tell you what a wonderful person she was, because you probably already know that. Diana and I became friends through Catster when my cats Blue II and Ruby met Theo, then more recently we were Facebook friends. Your mother was always a true blue friend, she never failed to put a smile on my face, or fill my day with laughter. Theo asked Blue II to be his Co Pilot on Catster, and they went on many “adventures” together along with Theo’s other friends and love Thai Pie. Your mother never complained about her illness, she just took it in stride and lived life to it’s fullest. I treasured my friendship with Diana, she was one in a million. My life is so much richer having known her. I will never forget her. My memories of her will live on in my heart. Rest in peace precious Diana…

  22. Diana, you brought a smile to every day, in your own words & as Theo’s typist. flly free amongst the Angels, dear lady. i’m grateful to have known you

  23. Every time I read something from Diana I smiled.
    Dear Family, she had a very rare gift. I am proud to have known her.

  24. Godspeed, lovely Diana…. always in our hearts…. thanks for all the fun and joy you shared with us daily on Catster…

  25. Whereas I never met Diana in person, I knew her thru her kitty THEO on Catster. She was ALWAYS so bright and cheerful and brought a smile to everyone’s face, I know. She will certainly be missed by me and the whole Catser community who looked forward to her presence there. Godspeed, sweet Diana, you will live in our hearts and will be missed…. prayers of comfort to your beloved family…

  26. Although I never met Diana in person, the joy and gift of laughter that she brought to me daily made her a very special friend. Her spirit and humor was contagious, conveyed through her Krazy Theo; she had the gift of bringing light to dark days and joy to sad ones. Diana is a beautiful soul who never asked for anything, never complained and was plain and simply a wonderful, giving lady. I will miss you very much. My sincerest condolences to Diana’s family. May peace be within your hearts. All of my love and prayers to you.

  27. Diana was a wonderful lady, a true & loyal friend, and one of the most giving and kindest individuals I’ve ever known. She gave so much of herself to all of us and was always there with whatever we needed. We cried and laughed together though good times and bad times on Catster. She will be sadly missed by all who had the good fortune to know her and experience her unique goodness and intelligent sense of humor. My heartfelt condolences to all of her family – furry and human – she will never be forgotten by all of us whose lives she touched in her very special way.

  28. My sincere condolences on the loss of such a wonderful, loving and witty Mom. Diana spoke her true nature through Theo, her beloved cat, and kept us all laughing and positive. Diana will forever be missed and always remembered, but she will live on in our hearts.

  29. In loving memory of Diana. David, you mother was a wonderful person who touched the hearts of everyone who was lucky enough to know her. She deeply cared about others, and reached out to them with her indominitable sense of humour. She will be sorely missed.

  30. Like many others you will hear from, I met Diana through Catster and Facebook. I never got to know her in person, but her wonderful sense of humor and her kindness were evident in both her and Theo’s posts on both computer sites. I’m glad I was able to experience that, even for a little while. My condolences to her family. I will keep you all in my prayers. Cathy Audorff

  31. My deepest condolences go to Monica and David. Diana was one of the first people I “met” on catster. Theo’s zany personality and comedy was always a breath of fresh air. Although I never met her in person I feel I have known her for years. I will always have a space in my heart for her and Theo, and will remember her with a smile and a chuckle.
    Eleanor Price

  32. Dear Monica and David…My heart goes out to you at this difficult time…I had the pleasure of meeting your Mother on Catster…I remember her reaching out to make me feel welcome in the groups we were both in and being there with a fun post and in difficult times with just the right words to make us feel better…I admire her and the courage she showed always trying to make others laugh and smile through Theo and his antics even though she was not feeling well…Blessing to you and your family…I know that she is watching over you always and forever…Love and hugs Faye and her Boys

  33. Dianna touched many through crazy “Theo” . We came to know her through the eyes of her dearest pet, but in the end it was her and Theo we came to love.

    You will be dearly missed.

  34. Diana was one of the first people I met on Catster and although I did not know here personally- her love, humor and love for others was so evident that I feel as I am losing a close friend.

    Her humor as Theo’s personality brought countless smiles to my face during times I did not think smiling was possible.

    I will miss her every time I sign in to catster or FB.
    Diana you will be missed deeply, yet I feel that you are in a good place and no longer suffering with your illness.

    Much love…Nan

  35. Monica and David, my heart goes out to you in this time of sadness.
    Although I never had the chance to meet Diana in person, she was a source of much love and laughter in our Catster groups. Despite her pain she was always there for us to share funny stories, entertain us with Theo’s pictures, and to brighten our days. Diana was a great lady and we will miss her.

  36. Monica and David I am sending you my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. She was a wonderful, warm and funny friend to so many people. When her health prevented her from normal activities she shared her love and wonderfully humorous personality with her on line friends. I feel so blessed to have been one of those friends. Fly free Diana, you will return to us often in our hearts.

    With love from,
    Diane and family

  37. My deepest sympathies to you, Monica and David, my heart and prayers go out to you during this time of deep sadness. Your Mom was a dear friend, someone who brought smiles to countless people on Catster. Her sense of humor, warmth and deep concern for all her friends will be deeply missed. She was a light in my life and I’m a better person for having known her for the past few years … she will live in my heart forever. God bless you and your family with His loving peace and comfort.
