Please accept our deepest condolences on the passing of Diane. Although we had the privilege of meeting on a few occasions, it was always a pleasure to chat with her, especially with her 'down east' patience and humour. In our minds, we knew Diane extremely well through Wilf's conversations, extolling the wonferful wife and mother she was.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all today.

Dear Wilfred, Tony, Tami, and Family,
Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about Diane's death. As a family you have shown tremendous strength through this difficult time.
The "Dialne Stories" certainly show how she was the kind of wife, mother, and grandma that provided not only a deep caring love for her family but also a lot of fun and laughter. She was truly a woman of strengh and grace.
I know she will be carried in your hearts forever, and will be dearly missed and remembered by all who knew her.
The following quote was found on a headstone in Ireland:
"Death leaves a sorrow no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal"
Sent with love and heartfelt condolences,
Marlee, Tony, and Josh Campbell.
