  1. I’m so sorry for y’all’s loss. She was my Frist born niece. She was a spitfire as a small child. My daddy was always picking a fight with her. Which she loved. She is now at peace and on her spiritual journey. Get together and have fun. That’s what she would have wanted. May God bless you all.
    Love, aunt Glynda

  8. January, 50 years ago in a class called “Modern European Intellectual History,” I met John Calvin Parker. He brought Dianna, Keith, and Kraig into my life. I fell in forever love with them all. After we married, Dianna asked me “what should we call you now?” I said: “You have a perfectly good mother. Call me Leta.” She said: “Ok, but every time I call you Leta, it will be the same as Mom.” It is the way it always was with us. Dianna came to live with us when she was 12. First in Tenaha then in Lumberton. I want to share some of our best times times. In Tenaha, we lived near her beloved Biggie. We had wonderful times with her schools friends at Lake Murval, Chrystal Lake, basketball games playing tennis together but most of all with Biggie. She was filled with talent and had so much love in her heart. Dianna was a gifted dancer and photographer. She was not only Captain of the Tenaha Drill Team but also their choreographer. When she was Homecoming Queen at Tehana, she made her own gown. My favorite pictures of her are the ones that she took of herself. She took one standing on a railroad track near Sour Lake, two of her and Rickey, and one putting on lipstick. I also love a photo of her holding her little sister, Rebecca, when she was pregnant with Shane. She loved her children, grandchildren, her brothers, and her little sisters, Sarah and Rebecca. We were blessed to have her in our lives. But as long as we all live, she will live in our memories.

  9. So very sorry for your loss Melissa. Love Kathy Wayne. Thinking about you and wishing I could give you a big hug. Love you!

    Shine on, Dianna.
