  3. Dine was a good sister-in-law to me. I especially recall her kindness and hospitality at the passing of my father. Diane generously opened her house and brought us comfort.
    My fond recent memory of Diane is us playing gin rummy and drinking wine, poolside in Sanibel. It was sunny and she was smiling.
    Never again will I be served lobster in endive shells for Christmas h’orderves. Such a hostess!
