The smile I see in this photo is always what I think of when I remember Diamone....always kind, always had a smile, and always soft spoken.  She will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved her.....

So sad to hear the unbelievable news of Diamone's passing.  A beautiful girl who transcended to a beautiful woman.   May her memory be eternal.

My best childhood friend from church on to highschool. I can't remember when we met, it must have been as little kids at church. When she transfered to Copley to go to high school with us...I was soo excited! I love you Diamone and your whole family! May your family "live long and remember"

So sad reading this.  i have great memories of spending the night at Diamone's house.  My favorite memory was going to the Sly and Family Stone concert with her.  Probably my first concert.  Seems like we got in trouble for being out so late.  Blessings to her family and close friends.  Denise Fellows Lawless

What a beautiful girl with such a gentle spirit.  I was so shocked to see it in the paper so close to our reunion not realizing she was ill.  I went to the calling hours today and saw her beautiful family.  She had cancer only a few months which progressed quickly. So sad. She had such class and a gorgeous smile.

Although it has been many years since we last spoke - there has always been a place in my heart for Diamone.  So many fond memories.  May she live on in our lives and in our hearts.

Don't quite know what to say ... wonderful fun memories of a really special girl.  I haven't see Diamone since the day we graduated and am sad that the opportunity to share some time with her will not be on this earth.

Diamone and I used to walk to the 'new mall' all the time. We had so much fun sleeping in the camper in their driveway. She was such a sweet person!
