    1. Rochelle, I remember that day vividly, as well. Could not believe it. It was hard to look at photos of her for a long time. I saw her in NY once. She was so radiant. And tall!
      I think Diana would have transformed fashion and attitudes for women in her age group (she would be in her 50s now). I am sure she would have transformed other areas, as well.

  5. I remember that night, my front door was open on a beautiful summer night and I heard sirens nearby as the news came on TV, it all seemed so close, and so overwhelming. The emotions were so strong I never will forget that night everything changed.

  8. Diana was a beautiful person, inside and out. So loving and giving to those in need and a loving mother to her two beautiful boys.

    Just as her life was beginning anew, it was cut tragically short. How wonderful it would have been to see Diana fully blossom.

    She was one of a kind, yet in many ways her boys, now grown men are so very much like their mother. She would be so proud of "the boys".
