I am quite saddened to here of Diane's passing. I remember her as being cute and sweet in high school.

We have truly lost a beautiful member of our graduating class. She was a georgous gal. I ran into her down here in St. George last year. I gave her a hug and told her how good she looked. It is really sad to loose so many girls in our class to cancer. God willing they will find a cure for this.

I only remember Diane from her class pictures and maybe seeing her in the classroom or the hallways. I did think that she was a gorgeous girl. I too, think it a tragedy that so many of our girls have passed away from cancer, and this at too young an age. While great advances have been made in curing this illness (two-thirds of cancer patients now survive!), much work is left to be done. Please all--early detection, and prevention, is your responsibility.
