Michael & family of Diane,
We were shocked and so very heart broken to have read of Diane's passing. We have known her for many years and she has been a wonderful customer of ours. She was such a wonderful woman and beautiful, hardworking person. We will miss her dearly!

My condolences go out to the family of Diane Piazza She was a wonderful person and me and my wife Sherry loved to visit with her occasionally at her flower and plant business when we lived close by there.
I had a great fortunate opportunity to work with Diane when I first met her over 40 years ago,when we worked for the summer youth program cleaning up the city's parks. There was many great friendly and cheerful memories with her,she will be missed but never forgotten.
