Dear Devin, Tara and family,

I remember how warm and friendly you mother always was. She made the world a much nicer and happier place. I count knowing her among my blessings.

Aunt Diana will forever bring a smile to my face. She made literally everything funny, even when she wasn't trying. I remember just laughing with her at every family function, like the kind of laughing that brings tears to your eyes. Listening to her tell stories where even the smallest details were explained hilariously. She made me incredible furniture for my doll house when I was young. She made inspiring artwork always. Beyond all of that she made you feel loved and important. She always took the time to ask what you were up to and then be amazed at the answer.
I feel blessed and happy to have had her as such a huge part of my childhood. I can't wait to use her to inspire in my classroom. Continuing to share the artwork and memory of my amazing Aunt Diana.

Devin and family, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. I will pray that God's comfort sees you through this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 says, "3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too."

Dear Tara, Devin and family, your mom was a very kind and creative woman. The times I spent over your house are filled with fond memories. She took the time to paint with me and my mom has at least one of those paintings hanging in her home now. My thoughts are with all of you.
