Dear Varga Cousins,
So sorry to have heard about your lovely and adventurous mom. Diane was one of a kind and impossible to forget. We are all so sorry for the great losses you have suffered this year to your beautiful family. I was happy to learn that Diane continued her Hungarian cooking, and the photograph with her big smile brings back lots of memories of decades ago.
Sending your family prayers and a hug during such a difficult year of loss.

your cousin Esther (Val Horila's daughter)

Diane was a wonderful girl. We dated in high school sometimes and were always friends. She was beautiful. I did get to see her again when I sold her parents home some 40+ years ago and we got to have lunch together and discuss old times.
I was friendly with her brother Wayne when he had the gas station.
Time catches up with all of us eventually. I will always have warm thoughts of her.
