  8. Sue (Reed) Shumaker says:

    My heart breaks for my Brother, Uncle B and his children, grandchildren, all of Diane’s sisters and brothers were very close to all of us just like “Aunt Diane” was more like another Sister to us and we know how much “Clove” loved her and my heart breaks for my brother as “she was the love of his life” and so said to have to leave us so soon.

    Nothing can be said that will ease your pain or take the hurt away from your children as we all knew how much she loved her family…..no matter how much you miss her and you will forever just be thankful the rest of you are all together and there for each other and stick by your Dad as he is going to be lost for a long time…the memories will never go away and she will always be missed. I wish I could take some of your pain away….God knows I love all of you and my “big bro”…and guys take care of him now and he needs you more than ever and you need him….I love you. Aunt Sue
