|Let the memory of diane be with us forever|
"I'm very sorry for your tragic loss of your beloved wife and Mom. And while I don't know you, and I didn't know Diane; I hope that you will accept my offer of deepest sympathy to you in your loss. This past Sept, my very precious and beloved Mom died, and I find comfort in knowing that she's not suffering, and in the resurrection hope. To be able to hug my Mom again, and feel her loving arms around me. So I look forward to this time sure to come! (Acts 24:15; Eccl. 9:11b; James 1:13; Isa. 33:24; Job 33:25; Rev. 21:4, 5; Psalms 37:10, 11, 29) Take care, And I hope that you will look these verses up that continue to bring me comfort and I hope will bring some added comfort to you too. Sincerely Your, Cindy"
"Rodney, We remember DeeDee often, especially this time of year.
Our comfort comes from God's promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 and DeeDee's testimony that she was trusting in Him.
"For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. For the Lord Himself will decend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. THEREFORE COMFORT ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS" Uncle Ray and Aunt Mable"
"My fondest memories of DeeDee always includes her sweet smile and quiet personality. I never heard DeeDee complain about a single soul regardless of her age. She always had a twinkle in her eye and love in her heart for everyone who crossed her path. The years have gone by, and I am so sorry that I failed to keep in touch. I have a heartful of good, loving memories. Peace be with you Rodney and your sons as you face the difficult days ahead. Uncle Jim Smith"
"You're all in our prayers and thoughts. Rest in eternal peace with God!"
"Rodney, We have known and loved DeeDee for 48 years. She was the "Christmas baby" to our family when she was born that December. Over the years we enjoyed her visits, e-mails and phone calls - though sometime far apart. We shared her joy and the happiness she expressed in the birth of each of the boys. We rejoiced with her a few years ago when she wrote that she was saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ! Later we had the opportunity to go to Arizona and meet you and the boys. We are so glad for the long phone conversation we had with DeeDee just a couple weeks before she died. She was so happy about what God was doing in your lives and in your church. What a shock it was to hear she passed away so suddenly! It seemed she was much too young. But the Bible says "God saw us before we were born and in His book were written the days ordained for us, when as yet there was not one of them." Psalm 139:16. It is such a comfort to know that she was trusting Jesus who said, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies." John 11:25. We will miss her so much but we look forward to seeing her again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the boys at this time. Uncle Ray and Aunt Mable"
"Rest in peace Diane."
"Rest in peace Diane."
"Rodney so sorry to hear of your loss and you and your family are in my prayers she was a wornderful person and will be greatly missed I remember our time at cannon in red"
"Rest in peace sweet DeeDee."
"I am sorry to hear of Diane's passing. So young. Time passes quickly and all too soon it lives in our memory. I remember the Christmas Diane was born and her Dad came late to the family Christmas party to inform us that he was the proud father of another beautiful little girl! I remember being so excited. A Christmas baby! There were to be other family gatherings for birthdays, reunions, and Christmas when all the families gathered for a wonderful time together. I am Diane's oldest cousin (on her Dad's side) and I remember her childhood. She was a quiet and shy one that her Dad fondly called "DeeDee." I am sure others will remember her as cousin, sister, niece, friend, wife and mother. Each one will have a different story to tell and memory to treasure. My deepest sympathy to her husband, and children. The role of a devoted wife and mother will be held in your hearts for a life time. May God bless you now and during the months ahead."
"A mothers love for her children is a wonderful thing. R.J. And Josh your mom was blessed to have two such awesome kids. Always be assured of how very much she loved you both. I pray your memories of her and of her love for you will comfort and warm your heart always. I am so sorry for your loss. Rodney you have had a major shock and loss and I am so very sorry about Diane. I know you will feel her loss here deeply even as you are comforted that you will see her again someday in Heaven. I believe you know that you have been entrusted with loving, guiding, protecting and providing for the two most important people in your and Diane's life's. She is trusting you with her treasures as you would have trusted her if you had been called home first. It will be a challenge to adjust to the new normal in your lives. I refer you to Gods word for your source of strength. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 NIV) Remember to always pray and ask that God will give you strength and wisdom. I pray you will all be comforted by your faith in God, your relationship with Jesus, by your good memories of Diane and your love for each other. God bless you all."
"Though words can’t ease your sorrow, hearts can share your loss. We Remember Them In the rising of the sun and its going down, We remember them: In the blowing wind and in the chill of winter, We remember them: In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring, We remember them: In the warmth of the sun and the peace of summer, We remember them: In the rustling of the leaves and the beauty of Autumn, We remember them: In the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them: When we are weary and in need of strength, We remember them; When we are lost and sick at heart, We remember them; When we have joys we yearn to share, We remember them; So long as we live, they too shall live, For they are now a part of us, As we remember them. Love and Hugs"
"You will always be in our hearts and will be missed. There are so many memories we will keep with us that will continue to make us all smile .your memory will live on through your beautiful children and your loving husband. We love you and miss you."
"When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.
Diane, you will always be a treasure in our hearts."
"God saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be, so he closed his arms around you and whispered come to me, you didn't deserve what you went through and so he gave you rest. God's garden must be beautiful, he only takes the best.
Diane, you will be missed, loved, and always remembered."
"My soul mate, my best friend, the one that made me whole words can't describe the love we had the more I was with her the more I wanted more time with her. the last 9 years we were together almost 24/7 and their still was not enough time together. GOD truly brought us together 20 years ago and for the past 15 as 1 blessed by GOD to say part of me is gone doesn't come close to describing how I am feeling but I do absolutely know she is in heaven with are Savior free of any pain which she had been enduring for several years, sever pain . our LORD JESUS CHRIST used her heart surgery to make me see I needed CHRIST in my life and then used my salvation to make her see she needed CHRIST in her life from the very beginning to the end GOD has had his hand on us she also gave us 2 wonderful boys Rodney III and Joshua they will never forget you nor will I and they will be raised to know CHRIST like we do for me it is still by faith but for you it is by sight I know for a fact that Diane and I are begging anyone reading this to answer JESUS knocking on your hearts door to accept HIM and to believe that he was beaten, crucified, died was buried and rose again 3 days later to take the sin of the world also to follow Him and to humble ourselves and to repent of our sin than you will be saved forever and indwelt with the Holy Spirit and when our appointed time comes we will all be together again with our Savior for now the crying and the pain of her loss is deep it will get better over time but I will never forget about the blessing that GOD gave me in DIANE and I will never forget the lessons I learned from her my love for you is forever and we will see each other again your husband
