Borden family,
I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with Diane at Mainland. She was an amazingly kind woman. We so appreciated her. I will keep your family in my prayers.

Dear Buddy and Family, Please accept my deep and sincere sympathy on the passing of Diane. She was a most wonderful, delightful lady with whom I had the pleasure of working for many years. She was not only efficient and highly professional at her job, but was kind, friendly, and supportive to all of her colleagues. We often joked about both being born on December 13. She was loved, admired, and respected by all who knew her. It was an honor to call her my friend.
