Condolence: I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to the Gray and Pearson family during this difficult time.I know that DiAnne will be dearly missed since she has touched the lives of so many people during her life time.I hope that you will find peace and comfort while reflecting on cherished memories shared with DiAnne.I hope also that you will find comfort while while reflecting on God's promises for the future.He has promised to totally eradicate not only death,but the emotional pain we go through during the death of a loved one.(Rev21:4)He has also promised a grand day when all of our loved ones who are in his memory will be resurrected to life on a paradise on earth.(John5:28,29)
What a wonderful time that will be to welcome them back experiencing the joy that lazarus family felt during his resurrection!I hope that reflecting on God's promises for the future will give you a positive outlook. Here is a link to a video that you will find comforting.

Condolence: I stepped into my garden as the Church bells struck the hour and, surrounded by blossoms, birds, bees and butterflies, remembered.
Separated at birth by 17 days and an ocean, we became instant and permanent friends when we met in 1969.
I returned to England in 1971 and it was almost 40 years before we were able to meet again. The bond was as strong as ever. She met my friends at her surprise birthday party. Explored the glories of Yorkshire's Moors, Dales and Coast and the historic city of York where I now live.
Then our final days together in December 2015, precious beyond words.
Some say a butterfly represents a soul.
I hoped that our long distance migrant visitor would arrive this week and on Wednesday, August 1st, Yorkshire Day, the beautiful Painted Lady arrived, the soul of my friend, my sister, my Twin.

Condolence: Heaven now has an angel, my dear friend DiAnne. You stood by me during the toughest times when I first arrived in Atlanta. You loved my children like your own. I will miss our fun times dancing on Campbellton Road and, of course, exercising with one black shoe, one red shoe, one black sock, one red sock and a lot of love and laughter. No more walking on Old National Hwy with me at 6AM, just rest in peace. Love and miss you.

Condolence: My heart is full and my eyes are full of tears. The tears are for missing you and knowing that you was a wonderful Aunt to me. You always made me smile and laugh, in good times and bad. Your spirit is like the shining sun. God blessed me with you in my life. Now I have your spirit to call on. Your presence and smile will be missed, but I know you live forever. I love you Aunty! Until next time.

Condolence: To my dear friend,
I thought of you today, but that is nothing new
I thought of you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part.
God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart.

Wishing peace and comfort for the family knowing that DiAnne lived a good and full life surrounded by love from friends, children too numerous to mention and family.

Rest in peace my very good friend.

Condolence: Born 17 days and an ocean apart, we became instant and permanent friends when we met at the hospital where we we working in June 1969.
In 1970 we flew to England where DiAnne met my parents and became part of my family, as I was already part of hers as Ma's "Other Daughter". After my return home in 1971, we didn't meet again for almost 40 years but the bond remained as strong as ever. DiAnne visited my mother, met my friends at her surprise birthday party and explored the glories of Yorkshire's Moors, Dales and Coast and the historic City of York where I now live. In December 2015 I went to Atlanta and spent our last precious time together.
My husband Jim & I often talk and smile and laugh about our friendship, our memories sustain us. On Friday we will spend quiet time remembering my friend, my sister, my Twin.
Our thoughts are with Ma, Cissie, family and friends.
