Dear Charlie and family,
It is such a sad time with Dianne's passing and yet we are glad you were able to have your private farewell today. We know that Dianne will live on through you all as we see a little of her in each one of you, whether it be in her mannerisms, her smile, her laugh, her values, her love or her ability to talk! Dianne's greatest loves were her husband and family and she was so so proud of you all.
We are praying for God's strength and peace for you all as you walk through your grief. Much love from the Hilario family.
