To our dear New York friend of 40 years,we we're lucky to have you and your family moved next door to us for many years in Louisville,Ky Our neighborhood was a wonderful place with young adults and plenty of kids. We will always remember the times,some of us would get together and play card games and listen to Dick play the guitar and sing after we had a few Purple Passions Drinks. When the Diemer moved to NC, Dick passed away and Kathy had relocated to Cary,NC. Our oldest son Ken also lived in Cary and when we visited him,we sometimes invited Kathy over for a Cajun Dinner cooked by Ken or we would go out for lunch. Chuck and I will always remember our great friendship with our New York friends, the Diemers.You will be truly missed . Jan and Chuck Landry Johnson City,TN

Dear Christine and Alison and families
Words can not express how sorry i am to hear of the loss of your mom. We spent many hours in deep conversation throughout the 50 years I knew her. Even though we were not related by blood i always considered her my cousin. I’ll be there in spirit tomorrow and Saturday and pray that happy memories get you through this most difficult time.

I recall your mother and father very fondly. Throughout college and the early years of marriage we stayed in touch I even saw you girls at times. I introduced them in college. Please accept my families condolences.
