My friend Dianne

This is my friend Dianne, with Daniel taken in Sydney in 1998.

Dianne & Daniel Sydney 1998

This is how Dianne was. Always smiling and always beside her friends.

Dianne died on July 28 from complications in her battle against cancer (leukemia). She had survived three treatments for breast cancer, and all through this, she became more determined that she was not going to be beaten down. Dianne was a fighter.

She was also a wonderful friend, and was always there when you needed someone to just chat. I have some wonderful friends, but she was the only one that really kept in contact following Daniel and I breaking up in 1999. I miss her already, and hate that I can’t be there to share a final glass of champers in honor of a real friend, with the people who loved her.

If inclined, feel free to check out my other pictures of Dianne.
