    Shawn, Scott & family,

    We were very sorry to hear of Dianne’s passing. Years ago she was one of my mom’s best friends. I have some very fond and fun memories of her.
    One in particular was when Dianne and my mom were taking our car, a convertible, to the Robo Car Wash. Dianne drove and when it was our turn water started shooting in through gaps in the windows!! They laughed so hard about that!! I’ll always remember how Dianne wheeled that 1967 GTO with a 4 speed around town!!!
    Our thoughts are with alll of you.

    The Mark Mason Family
