Remembering one of the most precious, thoughtful, and giving person I have ever known. Dyan had a heart of gold and no matter how little she had she was always willing to give. That was the kind of person she was. To remember her and the beautiful smile she had fade away because of all her disabilities and horrible pain she was in just breaks my heart. She is truly a hero in my eyes because even though she couldn't do much for herself she fought to live. She fought the fight. I'll LOVE you forever and ever my sweet sister and you'll ALWAYS be my hero.

My aunt Dyan was one of the most thoughtful people I know. She was always thinking of others. I remember her making Barbie Doll Clothes for my Barbies when I was a little girl. she always called me by my middle name Hope. Her smile made you feel warm, loved, and special. I love and miss you aunt Dyan, but I am so thankful you are no longer in pain. You loved life and now you are living the Eternal Life!

My sister, my friend. Dyan had the biggest heart and loved life with a passion. But, her joy of life was taken when she got sick and grew tired. Her love for her family was all that really kept her hanging on for as long as she did and finally just prayed that God would take her home. We were selfish in begging her to fight, but she knew she would not get any better. Thank you God for this precious sister and allowing us to have her for as long as we did. We love you Dyan and will rejoin you one day soon. Thanks for being my loving sister. I will cherish you forever.

Dyan, my beautiful,sweet sister, I for the first time since you left us for your eternal home felt peace instead of sadness, when I saw the pain free face so peaceful and beautiful at the funeral home today. Yes, I still cry and miss you and will until we meet again. I love and miss you so much but at the same time I wouldn't bring you back to the suffering you endured for so long even if I could. Love you sweet sister, till we meet again.
