So sad for your loss David and family. Dianne was loved by all who knew her or came in contact with her. I know we will see her again in the eternities. Not goodbye but see you later Dianne.

I am so sorry about the loss of your wife. May God who comforts us in all of our tribulation comfort you at this difficult time. May his promise to swallow up death forever be an anchor of hope. (Isaiah 25:8)
