Miss Nancy,
I have just heard of Diane's homecoming and wanted you to to know of the wonderful memories I have of you and Diane. She was a special young lady and I was privileged to be a part of her life so many years ago. I pray the Lord will comfort you during this time and that you can rest in the assurance that you will see each other in glory.

Dear Mark and family,
Diane was a good friend and an encourager a kind loving spirit that God allowed to be a blessing in my life. This was years ago at Freedom Baptist when all our children were little ones. I have thought of her and you often as these years passed us by and wished We had been able to enjoy being nearer thru all these years. You are in my prayers as you take these steps forward knowing that Diane has already made it home. We love you all.

My deepest sympathy and may continue to receive God's blessings in this time of sorrow.
