    Diane was such a wonderful person. I was so lucky to get to know the family while Jamie was in high school and have such great memories of team dinners at their house and watching Jamie grow up into a great leader. Diane was always so kind to me and my family and had such a love a pride in Jamie. Truly a special lady!
