To Diana's family & friends: Diana was what I would call a "true Southerner". I relocated to the Plano office from the Eden Prairie office 2 1/2 years ago and I sat near Diana in our office. She took a keen interest in how I was asjusting to my relocation from Minnesota and I remember telling her many times I was happy because "you don't have to shovel snow." She would just look at me and smile. I am sending you all prayers and positive energy. Kind Regards, Megan Boesen, May 16, 2014 Rest in peace my friend. My deepest sympathy to your family.
