    My condolences to Diane’s family. I had the honor and privilege of working with Diane for many years at CSUN. Diane was an amazing coworker, friend and mentor. She always had a smile and positive attitude. Her faith in God was apparent in the way she treated others and lived her life. She will be missed dearly. Diane, I love you and look forward to the day I can see you again in heaven.
    Love,

    I’m so sorry for your Loss. I knew your Mom since 2004 at CSUN Admission & Records. from the moment I started Diane welcomed me to the team. She was so kind and warm and had such a big Heart. she always had nice things to say about her kids and grandkids. when she retired a few years ago I was really sad because not only did she have a wealth of knowledge but she was a good friend and listener. when Alicia sent out the email that she had passed away I couldnt help but cry. God always takes the good ones. I know how it feels to lose a parent. i lost my Dad 21 years ago at the age of 24. Diane will definitely be missed and will always have a special place in my Heart. i will never forget your Mom. May God give your family the strength to get through this difficult time. just remember How much she Loved you all

    I love Diane with all my heart. I cannot think of another person with such a kind and humble heart. She is one of my dearest friends who loved me unconditionally. She was an example of Christlike behavior and forgave everyone. She ministered to my mother and gave her love and dignity in the last year of her life. She loved my children and always showed them motherly love and concern. She tolerated my husband who dearly loved to tease her. I will think of her every day and remember her laugh and her love. I love you Lady Di.
