We Lost a Great Lady.
It is with a heavy heart that I post today. 3:00 AM on Wednesday morning, our world got a bit dimmer.
A wonderful women, and beloved member of the R Family passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer.
Diane was larger than life. A red head with a spirit to match. Funny, kind, outspoken and truly the life of the party, she will be greatly missed. She leaves behind a husband, two sons, two grandchildren, and a host of friends and extended family that will miss her parties, phone calls and crazy comments.
Although we were a generation a part in age, I always felt a strong bond with Diane. We both married into the R family on July 25th. We both delivered a son into the R family on October 26th. We both loved to socialize, laugh and drink margaritas.
I am going to miss her more than I realized.
And, while I know that she was greeted with open, loving arms and is cracking the angels up with her antics, I'd be lying if I said it didn't seem too soon.

My best to you & your family.
So sorry for your loss.
Celebrate her life by living yours to the fullest and offer a silent ching with every margarita :)
Cancer just sucks!!! (I lost a husband to cancer 4 years ago, he was 34 years old).
The hardest part will be in about 3 months when everything starts to go back to normal, that's when you'll really feel it.
My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family.
Prayers & hugs from me...we'll drink margaritas with her one day.
You and your family are in my prayers.
you have my deepest sympathy.
i am so sorry.
Maybe, she can meet my dad 'up there'. He could use a laugh right about now.
Take care, you're all in our thoughts and prayers today.
Your entire family will be in my prayers.
Sorry for your loss.
