We are so very sorry for the passing of sweet Diane. As you know, she was the kind of person that would light up the room whenever she entered. She had such a gift of making people feel at ease and important. Our hearts break for the hole left in your precious family's lives, but we rejoice in the hope we have in Christ and Christ alone and the promise we will see her again.

Love and Prayers,
Jeff and Amy Adkins

My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Hawkins family. I worked for Nancy for @ 10 years and my brother Greg was in school with Kitty. May the Lord meet your every need in a special way as only He can. Do tell Nancy I said hello.
