Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the Kesler family at this time of great sorrow. Diana was such a gracious person and will be missed by all. May God put his arms around you and comfort you in your time of loss. I know Jack would like to be with your family and at the services for Diana, but his hospitalization has prevented that, again we are sorry for your loss. Love to all.
