We encourage you to share your personal
condolences and stories of Diane Africk below and
we will share them with the family.
What I remember most about Diane is her laugh. When we are on the ship going to Russia our entire table was laughing like hyenas. She laughed a lot on that trip and many other times at dinners and visits. She was an easy to love person with a gently demeanor. She loved chocolate phosphates and ordered them every time we went to a deli. She listened to your stories like nobody else was in the room. We miss you Diane and you will be forever in our thoughts.
