I was one of Diana’s needy teens that she took in after I met Jeremy. I instantly knew that J and I would be forever friends, and Diana showed me all the love and support I needed when I was living alone in Dayton. I’d come to their home almost every weekend, do my laundry and watch movies with Ma and J, and then she’d send me home with leftovers for the week. The Caffees were more of a family to me in that year than my own family ever was. My heart goes out to all of you and your loss of one of the best and most loving people ever.
