Our Dianna, our beautiful ray of sunshine. She had a smile that would light the room. A personality that could melt your heart, and sparkling eyes of blue. She was an amazing sister, secret keeper, and listener. She was the life of the party, blasting her 2000's R&B stations, and dancing as if no one was watching. While secretly recording nene as she danced along. She possessed a heart of gold and gracious willingness to help those around her. We will never forget the joy she brought into our lives, and now because of her generous decision, a little piece of her gets to save the lives of others. Thank you for letting us experience this life with you Dee. We Love you and will forever miss you!!!
