    Diane was a wonderful lady. I met her when I ran Buffalo Books & Coffee. She would often bring her grandchildren in to the store to purchase a book or read to them. I will always think of her when having an iced mocha, as she would usually enjoy one while reading stories to her grandchildren.
    She will be missed! My thoughts are with you all.
    Warmest Regards,
    Liz Purcell
