To Bill, children and grandchildren, We are so sad to hear of Diane's passing. So many memories came to mind. Diane was a good friend and wonderful teacher. All three of our daughters had the good fortune of Diane as their science teacher. As a class mother I experienced first hand her devotion, enthusiasm, and kindness towards her students. How she held her patience with the 7th and 8th graders; I don't know! I also had the opportunity to work with Diane for many years on the parish's Liturgy Committee. Diane brought the same enthusiasm and devotion to the Liturgical Celebrations within the parish. Although we have not seen one another in many years, I still considered her a dear friend. To Bill and family we wish you God's Merciful Blessings during this time. To you dear friend, who won the race so beautifully, your crown awaits you! With deep affection, The Gorini family: Deacon Joe, Ronnie, Angela, Livia and Domenica
