    I think I am the only one who didn't call her DeDe. We named each other Annabelle and Dianabelle, and we were endeared to one another from fifth grade on. My favorite things about my cherished friend are her hair in high school, long, blonde, straight and shiny; her memories from our youth, growing up together in Charlotte, and her voice, that familiar voice of love over the years over the phone, calling to check on me and chat for a while; that genuinely caring voice of friendship, and the one constant throughout my life.

    Growing up with Diane brings many special memories. We spent much time together in our formative years. Dede as she was called was always thoughtful of others and fun to grow up with in both school, our church and all the activities we did together. May her family be comforted and know that she was loved by so many who grew up with her.
