I'm so sorry for your loss. Diane was a wonderful person and friend . We bonded over our love for animals. She donated many cases of food and beds to shelter cats. She was always there with a smile and brightened many of my days. I enjoyed our talks and emails and considered her a true friend. We started out as work pals but became true friends over the years I was was blessed to have known her.

Though I only knew Diane for 3 months she was always there with a smile when I arrived for work. She was a very friendly person and had already treated me like one of the family. She will be greatly missed.

Diane's loss will be felt by so many here at ACE, for the past 10 years she has been the smiling face that greeted me every morning. I will miss her wonderful sense of humor and her beautiful smile!

Your aunt was a special, thoughtful lady. She talked about all of you and how much she loved you. I am truly going to miss our conversations. I remember one in particular. Diane said “Doreenee”, this is the name she had for me, you are family and family sticks together. My dear Diane, I have you in my heart always. You will be greatly missed but never will be forgotten. 💕

Like others have said, all of us who entered through the front door at ACE will always remember Diane for her happy greetings. She often asked about your family and genuinely listened and cared. My last conversation with Diane I was sharing videos and stories of my new kitten. She showed me a pic of her new adoption and mentioned how he would sleep under the covers with his head on the pillow like a tiny person! She truly will be missed.

Diane was truly a bright light during the years I worked at ACE. Since my first day, she greeted me with a warm smile and what, no doubt was, genuine kindness. I am truly sorry for your loss, and as I know how much you will miss her, I am hopeful that in the days to come, you will feel her light is still shining. Peace to all of you.

Diane was of the nicest people I have ever known. She was so down to earth
and so real. When I worked with her, there was not a day that went by that she
did not put a smile on my face.
At work Diane was not just the receptionist, she wore many hats. Too many for
me to count. She was a loyal worker and treated everyone with respect.
She loved her family and spoke of them often.
She was one of the first voices most people heard when they called ACE, and
what a sweet and professional voice it was.
one it was.

I look at the condolences entered and I know every name (that's special to me). Diane was my rock for my entire life. We would talk every day in some way. Diane loved my boys like her own, this is the most special gift she ever gave to me. I was so lucky to have her as my sweet aunt Diane.

Diane is the one who instilled in me:
Nothing is more important than Family, absolutely nothing.

Thank you all for loving Diane
Brenda Pizzi

There is nothing I can say that can adequately describe this grief, this loss. She
has left an indelible mark on me and I’m sure everyone at ACE. Diane was a
very kind and loving person, always laughing at my jokes no matter how bad
they were.

I’m going to miss her.

Please accept my deepest condolences.
