    Don, Gregg, Lori and Meghan - we were so sorry to hear about Dianne.  She was a good neighbor, a good friend and a really, really talented, kind, and generous person.  She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.  Condolences and love.

    To Don and family,

    Don I am so sorry to hear of  Dianne's passing. I had the opportunity of working with her at Hawkeye on several occasions. I had a deep respect for her caring and tactful but tenacious fight to make our campus inviting and obstruction free and open to students with disabilities. Her efforts provided many students the opportunity and ability to pursue their dreams. It was an honor and a pleasure to have known her and have worked  with her.

    I met Dianne through Quota and enjoyed her friendly, caring personality.  Even years later, she always greeted me warmly whenever we would run into each other.  My sincere condolences to the family.

    To Don and family, many happy memories of Dianne be with you.  And I hope that these promises from the Scriptures will bring you solace, now and in the days to come, for Jehovah is the God of all comfort. “Do not be anxious…..but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” Isaiah 26:4; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Philippians 4:6-7 NWT. Peace be with you.
