2 years (2003-2005) staying with Diane in her "warm welcoming home" is the memorable time and one of the best times ever in my life! Will keep her in my thoughts and she will be greatly missed. RIP Diane, my American mom.

How I loved struggling along in the church choir with Diane. We were like the alto delinquents on the end and it was so much fun! She had a great sense of humor. Rest in peace, Diane.

My deepest condolences to the family during this difficult time. She was such a wonderful lady and I will miss her a lot but will cherish the memories as she was a treasure. Will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

RIP Diane. You left a beautiful legacy! I'm grateful for the opportunity to meet you a couple of times when you came to visit Buzz in California and for the privilege of a special friendship with Buzz (and Tami) and Austin. I'll meet you again when I earn my wings.

Diane welcomed both my son and I into her beautiful home on many holidays. We always looked forward to her kind hospitality. She also gifted me some wonderful memories. I don't think I have ever met a more charming and gracious person.

I am so sorry to hear that Diane has left us. She had been a wonderful friend and "mom" for me, James, and Jin for many years. She took good care of us and welcome us to her house and family. We shared many wonderful memory and she will be missed greatly. :(
