to my lost my childhood friend last night at 10:45 p.m. to cancer. She was my confidant, our mothers were best friends all their lives. I spent 3 mos every summer with her while growing up. She's the reason I love the Packers, and silliness and animals, forest and lakes and Wisconsin. I don't remember ever being without her and not laughing and feeling free. She has a great husband Don who has been her love of her life for 40+ years. I wish I could hug him and cry with him right now. He has been in touch with me daily since this last bout of cancer started. God loves you and I love you Diane Depies,,,,, RIP no more pain. childhood and lifelong friend
