    I have worked with Ms. Diane at Sams for almost 10yrs. She and I would tease each other everyday we worked together. She will always be with us in spirt. Miss you my friend (great-grandma).

    Ms. Diane was a colleague and dear friend to me at Sam’s Club. She always had something to say, in her own opinion, and that genuineness is a small fraction of her personality that I admired. She was one of those people who becomes the heart of wherever you are, and she was the heart of Sam’s Club. With little thought, I’m sure there wasn’t anyone who didn’t adore Ms. Diane. I have missed her presence since she hasn’t been at work in some time. I’ve wondered about her often, and how she was doing. It’s comforting to at least know she’s in the arms of Jesus now. I wish I personally had more time with her, like so many do. She leaves an incredible legacy in so many lives of others. I hope she knew the impact she left.
