    Aunt Diana, you will be greatly missed by all of us who loved you dearly. The fish fries,, the family reunions, having so much fun with all my cousins and you name it we did it. Give those Hobbs' up there a good kick in the pants.

    Im going to miss our one of a kind fishing trips and backing your car straight into the lake thinking that I was such a big help getting the car closer and all. You lost one of your house slippers. Ill never forget our time together and our secret trips to the boat. The time you actually got on the back of my motorcycle and let me give you a ride made me realize just how awesome you are. I love you Granny Dust
