    I’m so sad. Diann had been my best friend all through school. Even though we didn’t see each other when we graduated we never forget. I will always cherish our early days. Prayers for the family.

    Diann was in the first Wheeling Park High School Band. We became friends during that time at school and later we would all hang out at the Eagle enjoying the music and dancing. God takes his angels home when he wants them. May she Rest In Peace and my the love of family and friends and the faith in God help heal the sad hearts of all those who feel Diann’s loss.
