I'll miss our chats   / River Curtis-Stanley (friend, unmet face to face )

Howls on the wind for you, Diane   / Kate H. (Friend)
You were more than just a close friend. You were an inspiration, a reminder to live life to the fullest, to live without regret. Though your past haunted you, you stood up against it after so many years, and refused to back down.

Her legacy
She always resched out to the inner children  

The one thing I love about Diane among many loves, is that she helped survivors of child abuse. She had a way about writing that reached out to the hearts of those who have been victimized by this crime and she made us all feel like we could reclaim our lives again. She left behind a huge legacy. She was our soul mother because she nurtured the little ones within us and gave them all a place in her world, a world that was filled with peace, hapiness......and rainbows!

Thank you Diane for giving my little girl inside a voice again.

What She Loves  
In Diane's Words...

"I luv music, babies, gentle people, honesty..definitly a born again flower child!"
Diane's Poem - Poetry was her legacy  
'The Teardrop Tells The Story'
By: Diane Cordner

If you could catch one teardrop
and take a look inside
You would see the story
horrors of the child

The death of the spirit
somehow she still survived
Pay attention to the story
the teardrop never lies

Don't talk to me of "false dreams"
Don't tell me that we lie
No child can dream up horrors
that we keep inside
Fragmentation of the spirit
anything to survive
The child that lives inside us
the tears that she cries
If you could catch one teardrop
and see the pain inside
If you would hear the story
SAVE THE CHILD INSIDE

Don't talk to us of "false memories"
the teardrop never lies
Hear the children weeping
take a look inside
Stop the horrors of the night time
Make the monsters cry
PLEASE TAKE AWAY OUR MEMORIES
LET NO MORE CHILDREN DIE

If you could catch one teardrop
of thoughs who did survive
the horrors of our childhood
the pain all of us hide
If you could see the story
THEN KNOW THAT IT'S TRUE

Reach out to the survivors
who are reaching for you
We need you to BELIEVE us
to share in our pain
Let us know you believe us
TAKE AWAY OUR SHAME
If you could catch one teardrop
and take a look inside
THEN MAYBE YOU'D BELIEVE US AND HELP US TO SURVIVE
