    candle 4Diana had a beautiful spirit. In our years together in the former Corp Relo mortgage business at Citi, she brought a calmness to the hectic work surroundings. I agree with others that her kindness was unmatched and she will be missed. May God wrap you in his arms and bring you peace, Diana.
