“Diana was a wonderful young person in Peoples Temple. She was energetic and always wnated to do her share of any project. She was in the singing group "The Misfits" with me. We had a great time playing around, practicing our singing. She was also beautiful with a bright smile. When I spoke to her, I felt like she gave her full attention to the conversation, or to the task at hand. She was a very gracious and delightful friend.” - Laura Johnston Kohl

“Diane and I were childhood friends. We attended Jr. High and High school together. She had a loving personality and was a loyal friend who I miss so much and hate she passed at such a early age. RIP my good friend. ” - Sinnia
