    Diane was one of the first people I met when I started at Westview in 1989. She was always a hard worker and dedicated to her patients. We had lots of fun and I have great memories of Diane and Lannie. Rest in peace my friend.

    Diane was one of the most caring, compassionate people that I ever met. Even on our shortest staffed days, she always had a smile and a willingness to pitch in and help. Our loss is Heaven's gain!
