Dear Bob and family
It is with great sadness to learn about Diana. We graduated together from Elston Senior High lSchool in Michigan City.
Diana and I had a few classes together,however, we became friends when my family purchased “Santana’s Restaurant in Springville, Indiana.

Diana was a good friend and was one who was always happy. She loved Bob so much, she couldn’t wait to graduate and get married and begin living their life together!

She was sweet, compassionate and loyal to everyone she knew. She will be truly missed.

Rest In Peace Diane
