    I remember times spent at Lima Mennonite Church with Diane and you children .we also did things with Jay and Joyce with your mom. I Remember Jay picking Diane up in his Van. When Ginger had her accident she was able to go to her graduation in Jay's van because he had it fixed up with the boards for Diane. I Know it is hard losing someone you love. I PRAY God will bring you comfort. From Marti Wallace
