Memories Timeline


  1. We loved living across the street from them on Chaffin. We always spoke of Diane as “Bobby and Diane.” They were always a set! Miss those times so much. Best neighborhood ever………the Dodsons, Langdons, McGills, and the Swansons.

  2. Diane was a very special Christian friend to our family and such an inspiration to everyone that knew her. Love Judy & Floyd Cross

  3. Q: What will you never forget about Linda? A: Diane was a beautiful person inside and out. And she was an amazing sister-in-law. In the seven years that I was in the family I never heard a harsh word from Diane. My two boys Brandon Lee Dodson and Patrick Anyhony Dodson thought (and still do) the sun rose and set in their Uncle Bobby and Aunt Diane. They both made special visits to see the boys whenever they could. She is going to be missed by so many people that loved her. My thoughts and Prayers are with Bobby and Jason during this difficult time. Me and the boys love y’all so much.🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
