  1. My condolences to the family. I worked with Diane at Corwin and she always brightened my day with her smile and friendly greeting. She was on our Health Promoting School Team and was always willing to volunteer and work to help her students. She was a lovely lady and will be missed. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Nancy Tanner

  2. To the bereaved family: I’m sorry for your loss. Death is unnatural and not what our Heavenly Father intended for mankind. God promises that the dead can live again. The Bible says ‘Many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up.’�’��Daniel 12:2. Please draw close to God and his word the Bible and draw comfort from his promises.
