Condolence & Memory Journal

My brother, Phil and I vacationed in N. Falmouth when we were kids and got to know Joe and Diane during those vacations. We wrote to them for a while after those vacations but we never forgot either of them. Coming across Diane's obituary brought back those happy summer memories and saddened me at the same time. Sincere condolences to her family from both Phil and I.

Jason and I just want to say how much we will miss Aunt Dianne. She was warm and loving and always had her hands out for everyone. When we first met her, she and Uncle Al drove me and Melissa all over the Cape to try and find a new bathing suit top for Melissa! They didn't care how long it took all they cared about was making sure a teenage girl felt comfortable around the new family that she just met! We will never forget her! She will live on in our hearts forever ♥

Dear Al, Lisa, Bobby and Jimmy,
We were so sorry when we got the call from Lisa about Dianne's passing. Our hearts are broken. She was so special in our lives for over 60 years, spending so much time together, watching the kids grow up, this just was not supposed to happen.
The memories we have and the love and kindness she showed us will last forever. She will be deeply missed.
Our hearts and prayers go out to all of you, so sorry to miss her services.

You are the best. We love you,
Gloria, Lou, Cindy & Booka
