Our beautiful and deeply loved Wife, Mother and Nana was, far too prematurely, taken from us on Tuesday, 8th May, after an epic battle against the cruelest of diseases.
Her determination to stay in contact with her family and friends until the very last, displayed exceptional bravery and the deepest love a human can impart on their loved ones.
Diane loved England and arrived in Walberswick, from South Africa, with her family, in late 1995. She had a great joy of life. The many tributes we have received confirmed her extraordinary vibrant spirit. She brought laughter, uplifted you, listened with compassion and discretion. She was fiercely loyal, so generous and kind. She was the core of our close and loving family which she cared for and protected, with exceptional effort and pride.
Our family have been overwhelmed at the support, love and kindness from so many.
Thank you all so much for your generosity and the lovely words in the innumerable letters and cards we have received.
Her legacy of a zest for life, loyalty, courage and the deepest love will never be forgotten. We have, tragically, been denied due time with our very special and deeply beloved Diane.
