When I was new in ninth grade Diana kept us laughing in Miss McFarland's home ec class and I really needed that to offset my fear of those scary sewing machines.  She continued to provide laughs and smiles at swim team practices in the summers as well as at school.  And she was so excited to get the Beatles first album.  Rest in peace, Di, all too soon to be missing you at our reunion.
