Today I got a call from the husband of one of my Gilda's Club students telling me his beautiful wife died on Friday. Dianne Rose was one of the coolest people I have ever met. She was sassy, smart and full of life and energy. It was hard for me to ever believe that she was really sick. The stories she told our group were funny, inspiring and sometimes left me with goose bumps. Dianne is the type of friend you had in 7th grade. She never lost her youthfulness. I will miss her terribly.
