    So sorry to learn of Dianes's passing. I had worked with her for many years at the hospital. From back in the day when it was good old Beaufort County Hospital to our present Vidant Beaufort. She had a great sense of humor and was always helpful getting all of us straightened out with our bills! Godspeed Diane. Now at peace with all of your fur babies.

    I grew up with Diane in the Havelock Park neighborhood. We had so much fun in our early pre-teen years. Everyone played in the streets and we girls had many sleepovers at my grandmother Elsie Mae Trader's home beside Trader Store and Diane's home. Daisies and her Mom were so fun loving. I remember the beads that hung between the kitchen & dinning room that we pretended was a stage. One of our favorite songs that we'd sing & perform together wasBuild Me Up Buttercup! We girls were said when she moved to Little Washington, NC. Once Wendy Gardner and I went to visit her. Thank was the last time we spoke. Diane will always be in my heart and mist happy if childhood memories. My heart is heavy with sadness tonight reading this on Facebook. RIP my friend!❤
