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.
