I am shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Diane. My deepest and heartfelt condolences to Joe, her children , and all her who knew her. I'm so sorry, she is gone way too early.
I knew Diane and her family through EB soccer where our daughters played together. Diane, always a smile on her face, always cheering on Jamie and the girls, always so proud of her children, always told it like it was. Our world is a little darker now.
