Diana, Jeff Head, Carol Hendrickson, and I were together throughout our school years with Christine only away from us for a couple of years. It is sad to lose those that have been a part of our youth.

Diana was a wonderful and sweet person who I always liked. Awesome catcher too! Runs in the Vaughn family. Love and peace to her. Gayln.

Dear Vaughn Family,
I was very sorry to hear about the passing of Diana. She was a very good friend to me in elementary, Jr. High and High School at Piper. I had lost contact with her after my family moved to Raytown. God rest her soul. Respectfully, Chris (Hughes) Murdick, also class of Piper 73'.
