Memories Timeline


  1. We will sure miss you Aunt Diane, and really wished we could snap out of this nightmare. Sad sad sad to say goodbye to someone you really love and lookup to your whole life. The woman I called everyday I needed advice.or to know how to make something, like brown gravy,roux for a gumbo, banana pudding ir whatever. She was my Mother even though she was my aunt she always claimed me as her other daughter. She helped me when I needed to talk , when I needed to vent to someone. She gave me a place to live when I needed one. She baby sit my daughters when I needed one. She was all around the best woman I've ever known. And I only wished she were still here with me so I could have another chance to tell her one more time just how much I loved her and appreciated everything she has ever done for me and my family. Even though I told her all the time I loved her and she was my favorite Aunt, and I looked at her like she was my Mother. I will miss her ,my daughters will miss her, and my Real Mother (her sister) will truly miss her every second of every minute of every day of every week of every year that she lives and breath's. BC they were always at each others homes visiting and drinking that fresh pot of coffee. And I know my moma is lost without her sister. It was really hard to watch my mom say goodbye to her sister. It was more than she could bare or handle. So Lori Diane Johnson rest peacefully always knowing that each and every one of your family members friends and your 3 kids will be missing your beautiful smile and good company. You hade a beautiful heart . I can't even come up with the proper way or words to end this to give my love for you justice. Or to show how much losing you has effecting me alone not including the rest of our family. I love you so much more than anyone could ever imagine. If only you could see yourself through my heart and eyes����������������������������������������������
