I will leave your 65th birthday candle lit for you this day. I sure would like a phone call from you right now to laugh over stupid things only you and I would find funny and discuss hurricane Irma and what damage she may bring. Miss and love you, darling sister <3 Happy Birthday!
Posted by Susan Sheppard on March 15, 2017
Wow, I cannot believe it has been six years! Your laughter and jokes have been missed. I will see you again one day. Trust me, you aren't missing much here and I can just imagine the conversations we would be having if you were. RIP loving sister! <3

Today would have been your 54th birthday, and I'm thinking of you. Six years has been a long time. I long to hear your laughter filling the room and bringing tears to my eyes and aching to my stomach. I'm sure you are enjoying God's garden. Until we meet again. I love you always...Sister Susie

We miss you Grammy Diana! You would be so proud of Tanner and the person he is. Cancer has been a part of our lives for many years. Just this weekend Tanner shaved his head for St Baldricks in honor of his friend who passed away from cancer. He looks just like Travis now! I know you and Tanner would have such a close relationship. Susan sent me a video or Tanner playing guitar hero. We got to see a glimps of you and hear your voice! It was so good to see and hear you, even if it was for that brief moment! We love you Grammy!
Posted by Susan Hall-Sheppard on March 15, 2016
Wow, 6 long and short years have passed and I can still hear your laughter, but then you had a distinguishing laugh. We are still on the front porch with our notepads playing school as either Barbara and June or Penny and Diamond. That is so comforting! I walk always with you in my heart. I love and miss you, dear sister.

Dear Sis, Traditionally, I waited to be late for your birthday. That always happened because it always fell on the Labor Day weekend. I've been thinking about you a lot and did on the 6th, even though I worked that day. But know you are truly missed and loved. Sister Susie

Remembering you on this day, sweet sister, Diana. Still can't erase your laughter that still surfaces when I think of the personal jokes only you and I get. Just watched our videos yesterday and enjoyed visiting with you for your birthday. I love and miss you all the time--our bonds were strong. Please forgive me for pushing you out of bed. Your sister, SuKay XOXO

Happy birthday Diana! Tanner and I think of you often and miss you. So many times I wish you were here. You would be so proud of what a nice young man tanner is growing up to be! I wish we could still stop by your house and visit. You never fully appreciate the people in your life until it's too late. Our time here was too short with you. We love you Grammy Diana, and I will be sure tanner always remembers you!

Happy Birthday, dear Sister. September the 6th just isn't the same anymore; however, I will always remember you on this day and wish you the best. How about a piece of your birthday angel food cake? Just appreciating your warm sense of humor. I love and miss you so much. Susie <3

My dear friend - I think of you not only on this day but many days.
Miss you so much. Patty H.
Posted by Susan Sheppard on September 1, 2013
Dear Sis, It's funny how time just slips on by and we never know our own hour. What never slips by is the memories of the time we shared and love for one another. In a few days it would have been your 61st birthday. I remember how you hated your birthdays as you grew older. Happy Birthday in your memory of love. I miss you dearly!

The memorial garden is a work in progress and hasn't fully recovered from our winter freezes yet. I uploaded a photo this year and will update it each year. Every time I look upon the garden I remember those peaceful moments with mom. Thank you, thank you, thank you cousin Susan Mary for your beautiful dedication to her.
Posted by Wade Bee on March 15, 2013
3 years ago today we said goodbye to someone dear to us. There was a cemetery close to Mom's house that was remarkable to her. A statue of the Good Shepard never failed to catch her eye. A family member and dear friend to my mom was Susan Mary Von Ins. She dedicated a replica statue upon my mom's passing which is now located in a memorial garden in our back yard --> continued below...

Today would have been mom's 60th birthday. Missing her today :(
Posted by Kathy Abbott on September 6, 2012
What a happy birthday you must be having. I wish so much you were here diana. I hate to burden, but Travis really needs help. Please guide him, show him somehow, someway to turn himself back around. He was doing so good. Tanner is hurting and missing him so much, I don't know what to tell him. Happy Birthday sweet Diana.

Hello, dear sister, Diana:
It took me forever to get signed in but finally figured out I was going under a different email address. On March 15, I thought about you--th laughter, jokes and fun--only you and I understood. Sharing and caring were your middle names, besides Lynn, of course. I am looking forward to seeing you one day, and I keep your picture

Happy Belated Birthday!

Shared by Susan Sheppard on September 21, 2012

As usual, I'm always late for your birthday, but never forgetting you on that day.  I was in Michigan with no internet, visiting with Alyssa.  A newspaper article prompted me to share this poem with another lady named Diana that passed before her time:

God saw you getting tired

When a cure was not to be

So he closed his arms around you,

And whispered, "Come to Me."

In tears, we saw you sinking,

We watched you fade away,

Our hearts were almost broken,

You fought so hard to stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Your gentle hands at rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best.

So keep your arms around her, Lord,

And give her special care.

Make up for all she suffered,

That seemed to us unfair.

So many times we've needed you,

So many times we've cried.

If love could have saved you,

You never would have died.

      I miss you so much, Love Susie  XOXOXO

My Favorite Memory

Shared by Danielle Haynes on April 5, 2010

When I graduated from eighth grade, I got letters from all of my family on the retreat. Of course I sat in my corner and cried my eyes out. But one letter made me laugh and cry, and was by far the best. It was from Grammy and she told me her favorite memory. I had been visiting her over the summer, and it had been a long day. Grammy wasn't feeling well and Dad was out grocery shopping, my job had always been to make Grammy laugh and be the quirky person I have always been. Grammy and I were upstairs and the doorbell rang. We had no idea who would be knocking on the door at that time of night. I went down and opened the door, Grammy close behind me. When I looked out, I saw noone. I turned to Grammy and said, "There's noone here but someone left you flowers." Grammy looked out the door and started laughing. Noone had brought her flowers it was just her plant, and the person knocking on the door had been my dad who had gotten locked out. Moments like these were few, but I still smile and laugh when I think of her.

Remembering cousin Diana

Shared by Sylvia Goodman on March 20, 2010

My precious Diana, now with the angels after a brave battle.  I will forever remember her with fond childhood memories of playing greywolf, loving her new school clothes that she'd say I could borrow except they never fit or looked like they did on her.  Playing house and making furniture with cardboard boxes and picking vegetables from the garden to feed our dolls. In winter we would go sliding on the hill in the fields and had so much fun with her, John and Kay and Patti. I remember visiting her with friend June in Aurora, CO. as I drove cross country on my way to CA.  As years went by and we were miles apart, I looked forward to a Christmas card and said many a prayer for her.  I am comforted that she abides with Jesus in perfect peace till we meet again.
