    I first met Diane while working at the TD Bank where she convinced me to join the bowling league in Courtright.
    I enjoyed all the years that I joined Diane in many bowling tournaments. We had so much fun on our tournaments whether it be bowling or deciding where we would eat or just what dessert we would have before we called it a day.
    Diane will be missed.
