  1. So sorry for your loss.

  2. My sympathy goes out to the entire Burlison family, the Carbieners and to Margaret as well. I’m so sorry Diann lost her battle with cancer and was taken from all of you at such a young age. I guess God was in need of another angel.

    May your memories of her remain forever in your hearts. Again, I’m so sorry for your loss.

  3. Lisa and Family,

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a friendly, sweet person. My mom can be a bit nervous and shy and when she would wait at the school to pick up grandkids, your mom would be there too and chat with her and she truly put her at ease. She really enjoyed visiting with her. I never told your mom, but I always so thankful for her kindness. Your in my prayers.

  4. Dear Burlison Family,
    Please accept my condolences on Diane’s passing.
    Sincerely, Craig Davis
