Dear cousins. I was with you in spirit at ten as you honored your mom at her funeral. and now at the gravesite. I loved the photos and history of Aunt Dian. I learn so much. My memories of Aunt Dian are of a gentle woman who was so pleasant to be around. She was quiet with all the commotion of our cousins 's Christmases on Grandma and Grandpa's farm. Cindy you were just a little girl! So your sisters probably don't have many memories of those times. But we thought all of you were darling.

Your mom was always so thoughtful to put flowers on our grandparents' graves. She was a loving aunt.

One of the last times I saw Aunt Dian was when Dianne, mom and I drove to Lost Springs. She had made strawberry shortcake for us. She had a shrine of Uncle Paul up in the living room. They were such a great match! A beautiful couple who loved their family.

Thanks for all the wonderful pictures. Sending love to you all.

What an incredible blessing Great Aunt Diane was for me and my family. She always welcomed me with a sweet smile and warm embrace. Always asking about the family and how we were all doing. Her encouraging words stayed with me over the years as we lost mom and then many years later dad. I am certain that there was a beautiful celebration at Heaven's gates as she was reunited with all of our family members that have gone before. My family will be praying for our sweet cousins Cindy, Kim, & Tracy and there families. It was so wonderful to see them last night at the visitation. All of my love to each of you from the Caselman & Herbel Families.

I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Dian's passing, she always had a beautiful smile. I remember years ago when she brought the most tender pot roast to my mother and father in laws (Ella Mae & Harold Taylor) home when we were visiting, special memories. God Bless, Dian.
