Condolence From: Wanda Kilstrom
Condolence: To Albert and Diane's Family:
Words can never express the sadness of the loss of Diane. She was one of a kind beautiful inside and out and loved life. We shared many happy, sad and fun times together. We were co-workers at MCC, Church and Bible study friends, traveled together and on and on. The last time I saw Diane was on December 23rd when she walked so graceful to the church altar for Communion. This is how I will always remember her with all the other happy times we shared. Please know my thoughts, prayers and love are with each of you during this very sad time in your lives. May the Peace of the Lord Be With Each of you.

Condolence: My condolences to the Hampel family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth

Condolence: My sweet friend,

How can this be, that you are gone where I can no longer see your face or hear your voice?

Your friendship of 60 plus years has been a rock in my life. When I needed a friend, you were

one of only two or three I had on speed dial. The void you leave will never be filled.

You sprinkled the pixie dust and sparkles into our lives.

I will love you forever and miss you always.

Condolence: I am so sorry to hear of your loss! Seems like only yesterday we were on the beach at Port Aransas or swimming with the Dolphins. Your mom was such a sweet lady and I have many happy memories of spending time at your house. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
All my Love to you all,
Susan (Beattie) Shelton

Condolence: Dear Albert, Carla, Laura and Julie,
The news of Diane’s passing has just reached me. With all my heart, I am sorry for your loss. Diane and I met through work 33 years ago. She quickly became one of my favorite people. She was so beautiful, smart, charming and fun! She has help guide me and advise me throughout the years.
Diane was also kind to my son Nick and my daughter Natalie. She took them swimming and always remembered their birthdays. One summer, I had signed my son up for extra reading help and Baylor University. I could not take him one day because of work. Diane stepped in and took Nick to class. After class, they visited the Baylor Bear. She was always so good at working something special or educational with a task. Another time, when I was pregnant with my daughter Natalie, she took her to daycare so that I could go to an early doctor’s appointment in Temple.
Diane was like a mother to me and gave me unconditional love. I do not have any family in Waco and she always treated me like family. One time, before I was married, I got very sick and she brought me soup and crackers. I remember saying, “Oh, you don’t have to do this.” Without hesitation she said, “If one of my daughters were in your position, I would like to think that somebody would help them”.
This special person had an aura about her that people could not resist. Her dedication to her family, church and volunteering was so “Diane”. She gave with joy and shared herself with everyone! Words will never express how much I will miss her and the impact of her loving soul has had on me.
