In Loving Memory

Dearest Diane,

I'm so sorry that Denie is gone. I still can't believe it. She was the best mother and grandmother in the world and I always wished she was my mom. She was a mother to all of us! I remember her taking us to cottonwood mall to search for Ram items and that she would drive us to cruise by all the boys houses. We had our first girl's choice dinner at your house and Denie helped with all of it. She always treated me like I was one of her own. 

Blessings to you, dear girl.  

Much love,

Dear Diane... my childhood friend! Our sweet moms both left us this year! Tender time of life for our families. I want you to know of my love and appreciation for you and your family. I loved your friendly, kind, gracious mom! What a lovely, happy life she lived!

I'm so glad I got to know Amber and Tyson when I moved back to our old neighborhood.

Blessings to you and yours!

Love, Lou

Diane, I was so sorry to read about your cute mom. I have so many memories in your home, and Catherines Beauty Salon. My thoughts are with you as you go through this difficult time. Patti
