Tommy Lockard and I used to go to Luther League at Augsburg Luthern Church where Diane's dad was the minister and a really neat man. Diane seemed to gravitate to Tommy and I as friends.We were always hanging out together like two brothers and a sister.  We could talk to her and confide in her about anything. Tommy and I both really liked her, and even in our older years we spoke about her and wondered how she was doing.   She seemed like one of us. What a great girl!  I always hoped we could see each other in our older years and tell some of our old fun stories - but sadly, it was not to be.

This is truly a shock.  It saddens me that I did not maintain contact with Dianne.  Our fathers were ministers, our mothers were best friends, and we were neighbors on Hyde and Overbrook Avenues.  Dianne was a bridesmaid in my (first) wedding, but we lost touch after that.  She was a lovely person.
