I loved sitting on the bus talking to Diane everyday growing up. She impacted my life just by listening and talking about horses. Sorry for your loss. Prayers

Many memories I have running bus routes with her. We would sometimes drive field trips together, always pleasant to hang out with while waiting on the kids to come out from school at the end of the day. Im sure theres a bus driver breakfast table somewhere in heaven with Grassy, Ed, Etta, Bob, Jerry talking about their precious cargo ... RIH dear Diane
