I'm truly sorry to hear of Diane's death. We grew up together on Turner Rd. Went to same school, we lost touch with each other, after we Davidson moved to Stanley. Diane was a great friend back in the day. With all my sympathies, Diane Davidson

Will miss talking and laughing with Diane and Chad!! I remember being a little boy and seeing Diane. She was always so sweet and loving towards me and my brother. I don't recall ever seeing her mad and wherever you saw Diane you saw her favorite sidekick Chad! It breaks my heart knowing how much Chad will miss his momma. Norman, Shannon and Kristen I am sorry for your loss and if you need anything please let me know. I love you all!
