Diane and I became friends as we rode the bus together for the two years we went to school together. We should have kept in touch, but life has a way of doing that as we go on to take different paths in life. Sometimes we reconnect, and sometimes we don’t. I’m sorry that we didn’t have a chance to do so. May God bless.

Diane was my best friend when we were young preteens, before she and her family moved to Great Road. We played for hours on a stone wall next to her house and sat together on the bus. I’m so very sorry to learn of her passing. May she Rest In Peace.
