    Diane always chatted about you with a smile on her face. We met over ten years ago and worked together in our community and your mothers encouragement really mattered to me and I am better activist and human-being today because of her influence and teachings. I am forever changed, positively.

    With peace and much love,
    Desiree C

    I am so sorry to hear of Diane’s passing. My thoughts are with you. Diane was an amazing woman, who I had the honor of knowing and working with in the beginning of my career. She taught me what it means to be accountable to each other, and what social justice and activism looks like. The world has lost such a bright light.
