I am so sorry to hear of Dian's passing. She was a beautiful soul. Lynn Grove girl's just can't be replicated. As a girl I spent many hours at The Taylor house, Delores and I peeping on Della and Diane because they were older, and so much more interesting. When I was back home and saw Dian It was always so much fun to catch up. Prayers for all those that loved her as they learn to deal with this loss.
