Jenn, Tracy, Lindsey, I am so very sorry to hear about your mother. I ALWAYS loved her so much. I remember the good old days when she use to babysit Kenny, Chris and myself. I also remember when Jenn had her slumber party and it snowed like crazy and we went out and tried to bring the little puppies in and keep them warm to save them but it only saved one of them. Bless their hearts! The next morning your mom told me "One way or another these girls are going home"I've done had about enough"....she loaded up that big old station wagon and took all of them home too.. lol! Good ol Diane! Loved her! Love you girls too! No matter what... y'all will ALWAYS BE MY COUSINS! You will be missed Aunt Diane!
