Diane was one of my first patients when I entered practice with Dr Marvin Miller back in 1972. Such a sweet kind person with a great sense of humor. We shared some wonderful conversations over the many years I was in practice. I was saddened to learn of her passing and extend my deepest sympathy to her family.
