Diane Flores was the epitome of a selfless caregiver. She was always drawn to help others in need and had a natural compassion that is most prevalent in a mother. It is said that dogs are often the best judge of a person’s character, which is undoubtedly the reason that animals loved Diane as much as she loved them, especially Jo-Jo and Molly. Although she was always the responsible one, Diane still knew how to have a good time. Weather she was just going to Whataburger, or taking a trip to Delta Downs, it was always a party. She had a heart of gold and her radiance was always eminated through her passion for bright things, especially if they were purple. Diane was talented in her shopping, she could never leave a store without finding something she just had to have. She was married to the love of her life, Juan, for 16 years and her family was truly the pride of her life. Diane was loved by many, and she will live on in the hearts those she cherished for years to come.
