  1. As I sat there, I observed her ‘earthly struggles’. I eventually envisioned her ‘leaving’ here- a very meaningful breath at a time-and getting closer to God~ Inhale God-Exhale earth’¦ Inhale Peace-exhale suffering’¦. This may just be my own quirky way of dealing with losing her. I am not certain.

    I am certain- that it is His will, not mine! -and I am at peace, that SHE is at peace.

    I’m not saying that I’m NOT going to get good and mad someday- some minutes’¦. Some seconds’¦, that he took her away from all of us’¦. BUT- I really hope that He can forgive my selfishness-and instill me with memories, and a knowing of her not being as far away as I may think.

    My emotions may vary, but my love never will.

  2. Chuck, Joann and family…You were so lucky to have a mama that loved you all so much and she was lucky to have you. You were all wonderful to her and I know you’ll miss her terribly. I’m sorry for your lose. I wish I had the words to ease your sadness.

  4. Dear Lovall Family,

  5. Diane was a kind and caring person whose family always came first. She will be truly missed…

    My thoughts are with you all at this time.

  6. Diane will be greatly missed. I learned so much from her. After a long hard life she knew that the most important gift that God gave her was her family. Diane had many regrets from her past, but did everything she knew to make up for it.
    She loved her children & grandchildren, always wanted to do for them. When Diane gave it was from her heart, and gave and did without.
    I pray that her children will continue her love by sharing memories of her and being there for one another. (she wouldn’t of wanted it any other way).
    This will always be in my head and heart, hearing her say ‘I love you baby’.
    My condolences and prayers go out to the family as they experience her loss.
    Diane I know your with God now and I wait for the day to see you again. I’ll do your hair like I promiced.
    Love you bunches
    Terri

  13. I will never forget 34 years ago she took me in off the streets. I will never forget the summer trips to Mendon Ponds that she would orginize, I will never forget that even though she had a houseful that she was raising on her own and keeping together, she always had room for more. I will never forget that it was her that stood up for me when others turned their back, and her that was there when i lost my parents, I thank you for everything you have given me….I will miss you
