Diana Elizabeth Rimington 1951 - 2009

I pulled my post from yesterday after receiving a call from one of my wife's best friends about two hours after I put up the post...

My wife, of almost 20 years, passed away Wednesday afternoon. Her battle with breast cancer was finally lost after the cancer metastasized into her bones and slowly took over...

Diana (Di to most) was one of the strongest, most kind hearted, and loving people I have ever known. She was the mother of three children and my best friend for almost 25 years... I know I am not the only to make that claim, not only did Di have lifelong friends of her own, she was the best friend of more women than I can count. Something about her style, personality, and caring heart, attracted people to flock and stick with her for good and bad.

I have not seen her in a number of years, so I am blessed with memories of her as the healthy vibrant woman I always knew. For those of you that have been around her, helped her, cared for her, and loved her:

Thank you for being there!

Over, "Out", feeling guilty and sad, today from Richmond, VA

I understand......my ex is one of the dearest people I will ever know. She bring a smile into every room.

You were lucky to know Diana and have her in your life.

Though you may not have seen her in years, she was a big part of your life for a long time and when you lose someone that has been even a small part of your life it is tough... Our sympathies are with you and your family.

What a lovely tribute to someone you shared a good deal of your life with.

Unlike the rantings some other bloggers say about their former spouses after someone like yourself goes through a "change".

Kudos to you for being civil toward another human being no matter the circumstance.

May I offer my condolances to you, your children, Di's family and many friends.

Di is in a better place, free of pain and at peace. And someday you all will see Di again.

Lyndon
