      My heart is shattered and I can't stop the tears.  I just read Cigar Bob's post on facebook.  I just can't believe it. It hurts so damn bad.  I can't imagine how Bob is feeling. 

      Dian was so intelligent, encouraged and inspired everyone on this board and others, loved and played and sang her beloved blues and bluegrass music, was such a beautiful lady, inside and out, and she was my friend, and a friend to many all over the world. 

      I'll always love you, dear sweet Dian, and we're all going to miss you terribly. Rest in peace, Dian.  You fought one helluva fight, all the way to the end; it's time to rest now. 

      DAMN MELANOMA ALL TO HELL!!!!!!!!!

       

      You fought one helluva fight, all the way to the end; it's time to rest now.   You fought one helluva fight, all the way to the end; it's time to rest now.

          Thanks Lisa. I've been carrying her with me everywhere I go. I keep crying too. She just wanted to be with Bob, her family, her friends, her musicians, play her music and cook amazing meals. We are so completely different from one another, yet there was always a click. I remember when I was newly widowed she sent me a brochure on a City Slicker type trip she thought would be good for me. She wanted me to find myself. I smile everytime I think of THAT! She sent me flowers for a cold and spent hours chatting about EVERYTHING. She supported so many people here.  My heart goes out to Bob, Jesse, and all the many people that love her dearly. There is a hole in our little email group that can never be filled. There is a spot in the MPIP world that will never be filled. There is a place in us for us to keep her memory. She will be so missed.

          Hugs, Marie

                Barbie,  and  Marie;

                  I haate that this is what it took for us  to getogether on here again.  We all oved  out Dear Dian.  When I  was unconciious   in the Denver  hospital, she sent my wife a tape of her music for them to play for me.  
                (A Nun also came  in and played a Harp)  My wife liked both, but said she wondered what I would think if I came to and saw a haarp being plqyed over me!  She knew I would enjoy Dian's music either way.  Yoy booth know how many Hours I spent talking with Dddian and working with her in educating new melanoma patients.  She helped educate me!  I love her.

                                  Oh, Barbie Girl, I'm so sorry to read this.  I thought I'd just stop by to see if anyone had checked in for the new year.  Dian was such a sweet soul. 

                                  Glad to see some other names popping up here, but I'm so very sad to not see hers.
