    When we were neighbors, Aaron and Diana were the most gracious, giving people I have ever met. I will remember camping, and laughing, and all the good times we had.

    To Aaron and family, I know this is a painful time. I hope that the pain will eventually diminish, and you will look upon your time with Diana with love and fond memories.

    Bless you all.

  5. I knew Diana through her work at Fort McDowell. She was a true ray of sunshine in the department. She glowed when talking about her family and her adventures on her days off. She was always someone you could count on and was very proficient as a dispatcher. She was a person that others could talk with and she was very compassionate.

    Her loss is way too soon and underscores how fragile life is.

    God speed..
