I am so sorry to hear about Diane. We had some good times together when we worked at NDIC. Weather permitting we will be there tomorrow.

Mark and I are so sorry to learn of Diane's passing. Those of us that worked together at NDIC were one big family and have many fond memories together. Diane will be missed. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. (I love the "Eagles Wings" piano music on this site. It's one of my favorite songs and is so appropriate.)
