Three years ago today, Diana departed this 3rd stone from the sun... In the same way we experience different lives within this one, I have faith that we continue to live on. May your soul be reinventing itself in ways I can't begin to imagine! Love, David My deepest thanks to family and friends for your love and kindness!

Happy Birthday mom!!! I lit a candle for you and practiced prayer. It is always hard for me to understand what and whom I am praying to, but I just started and it's amazing how the power of prayer works. I know this is where you and I are free to enjoy one anthers company. This stillness is where you rest. I love mom.-C

I first saw Diana in late 1977 or early 1978 at an open mic session in Georgetown, Washington DC. I saw her play some original songs and was taken with her energy and vulnerability. I left the club thinking OK this girls got something going on. Boy was I surprised when a month later she showed up as one of the backup singers for the Catfish Hodge Band. I was the bass player with Catfish and the band was going through some personnel changes and additions as the band was in formation. Of course David showed up right at about the same time as we were going into the studio to record Eyewitness Blues. A record I am still proud of to this day. If you listen to the ending strains of To The Left. You will hear Diana's infectious giggle at the spontaneity of a track just nailed. I can tell you that it was always a joy to have her energy and contributions to our life on the road over the next 1-2 years on and off the road. The road is 90 minutes on stage and 22 1/2 hours until the next 90 minutes in a different town on a different stage. It was a joy and is still a warm memory in my mind. I am so glad you two found each other and shared so much together. My thoughts and best wishes are with all who are missing her.

David, we just purchased your house on Jennifer Dr. We are on the Lani having a glass of wine watching your videos on youtube, paying tribute to Diana. Her spirit lives on in the beauty she created in this house. We will enjoy every moment looking at the beautiful palm trees here. I thank you for sharing her with the rest of the world. We met Hank today and spoke of both of you. God Bless you, we wish you the best.

This body is not me. I am not limited by this body. I am life without boundaries. I have never been born, and I have never died. Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars, manifestations from my wondrous true mind. Since before time, I have been free. Birth and death are only doors through which we pass, sacred thresholds on our journey. Birth and death are a game of hide and seek. So laugh with me, hold my hand, let us say good-bye, say good-bye, to meet again soon. We meet today. We will meet again tomorrow. We will meet at the source every moment. We meet each other in all forms of life. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Dearest David, Just wsnted you to know I still think of you and Diana almostl daily. I know it sounds silly but I keep one of your cd's on a radio in my bathroom and listen to Dianna sing I Hope You Dance as I am getting ready to go out dancing. I told her years ago that I hoped you both knew that your singing was making fun memories for us and so many. Thanks for the memories and may God bless you! Love N Hugs, Carol N Corky

David: I just got out of the hospital again after 6 days and as i lay there night after night I had so many thought of you and Diana. I have been recovering from open heart surgery from just 3 months ago and I was struck with a twisted Colon again,if you remember when you and Diana lived across the street from us,I had Colon surgery. It was about 20 years ago when I met you guys living on Bahama Drive in Key West. I saw Diana carrying a small amp into your rental house and I told my wife I think the new folks are musicians, ha ha. David I've had so many wonderful thoughts of Diana lately. It's as though she was sending me messages while i was in there, late at night in that room by myself, in real pain, in the dark with tubes in my nose etc. I spent 3 straight nights without sleep, finally they had to sedate me on the fourth night. On the fifth night I was going to have surgery again, but they tried many different methods to untwist the blockage and it worked. The night i came home as I went to sleep,I listen to an old BLUE BYOU CD you guys gave me so many years ago and I peacefully went to sleep. Even now she is still in our lives, so I thought I would share this event with you because I really did see her in my brain while in a very painful and desperate situation, and it helped me through many long nights and days. Sincerely, Bobby Pazo

I just found your website again. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. She was amazing. When we have reunions (not as often anymore) someone will eventually say - “we need Blue Byou here”. You guys were considered the HAWK guys “house band”. We still tell the new guys, how you played for us at the Geiger Key Marina at the beginning of our first reunion. Then the last day we were downtown, and walking Duval street, we heard your music coming out of the Bull and Whistle Bar. We went in and danced the night away for our last night together. I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. Wes Guidry HAWK Missiles Guys

I know there is a growing number of people these days that don't believe in a higher power or God, based on the belief that if something can't be proven, it therefore does not exist, even though there are plenty of examples of our limitations, such as our inability to hear a dog whistle as the dogs go crazy from the sound or to see radio waves which we certainly know exist. But for those that still do believe and may feel that certain prayers have gone unanswered, I wanted to offer a reminder to help balance the scales. For each supposed "unanswered prayer," I am sure there have been many great things in your lives that you didn't pray for, or even think to pray for. Whether it be a relationship or a any number of fortunate events in your life. Some of which, you may not even be aware of, like the prevention of an accident or bad occurrence that was avoided without you ever having known about it. Maybe an illness that was cured that you never knew about or any other stroke of good luck in your life. If you have recently lost a loved one, how do you know that they have not returned to their true home, after awaking from a dream (this life) and are not giving thanks for their joyous return, while you sit and curse God for not answering your prayer to save them? We will never see the big picture in this life as we are going through it and therefore have an extremely narrow perspective of the whole. The events in our lives are ongoing and what may appear to be a bad thing at one moment, may lead to something great in another. So, just hang in there and keep the faith. Do the best you can and enjoy the ride, while giving thanks for all, including that which you don't see. It's all good, whether we realize it or not.

David, We are so sorry for your loss [just found online]. I alway felt honored having known Diana and you and fondly remember being you 'roadie' upon occasion. Whether enjoying your performances in Key West and Marathon, shopping with you two {when I was with Mary} and enjoying one of Diana's blender drinks at your apartment in Key West. Will never forget her 'three leg dog' on Docksides' bar while singing {only your lovely lady could have pulled that off} So sorry we lost contact over the years as we moved to Iowa and now reside in SW Louisiana. You, and she will be in our prayers and wish you the best in life.

Hi David, You may not remember me, but I know you will remember Honora, who is my BFF. We loved you guys and were sad when you moved from Marathon. Honora is in Marathon now and I am joining her soon, so I looked up Blue Byou in case we could hook up and enjoy your entertaining, loving presence. I was talking to Honora when I looked it up and I was shocked and so saddened by the message that I barely could tell Honora and we had to sign off. Diana was so special. The truth is that I adored you both, but she had a special connection that I cannot describe. Love and peace always, Betty

Have so much to say, but am going to keep it brief at the moment. Will be adding much more later. Just reconnected w/ David here on FB today and learned that Diana is no longer with us. Am so very sad right now. She was a tremendous support to me when, close to 30 years ago, I lost my brother in 1985. I met her and David when I went to Manhattan for my brother, and Diana and I corresponded for several months after that. She and David wrote and sang a song about my brother, which I still have on cassette (and will be sending David). She encouraged me to grieve but not "linger in that place for too long," which I'm sure she would be telling family and friends today. I will elaborate more once I process this, but her love and her spirit will always be with me, and I'm so very thankful to have reconnected with David after all of these years. Love you, Diana, and your spirit lives on.

Dear David, I just came across your calendar of March 2007 this morning and thought I would just send you and Diana an E-Mail to ask how you both were and if you were still playing and singing. What a shock when I went to your website! My God, David, Diana was one in a million. Words just cannot describe this beautiful woman. Such a kind heart and such warm, wonderful personality. Rose and I often talk about you two and the times at the Venice and Charlotte Harbor Yacht clubs as well as Farlows. Pleases know that my thoughts and prayers are with you David and I will never forget you. Charlie .

I know it seems like I have been turning this memorial site into my own personal novel lately, and that certainly is not my intention. There has not been a day since January where I have not thought of Diana and spoken to her as well. I had a thought the other day which I would like to share as I most certainly would have with her. During our years together, one of Diana's favoite things, one that made her happier than anything else, was to talk of such things, as we often did. She called it Satsang [Satsang (Sanskrit Sat = true, Sanga = company) in Indian philosophy means the company of the "highest truth.] Anway, here it is: As I was on my predawn walk this morning, the thought popped into my head that it feels so much better to think of ways to help others, than it does to think of ways for others to help me. About a minute later I saw several cyclists approaching from the opposite direction, all dressed in their gear and helmets. There were seven of them, six riding in pairs and one in the back. As they got close enough to hear them, I realized I was hearing three separate conversations and it was impossible to make out what any of them were saying. The movie "Bruce Almighty" came to mind, where Jim Carrey was God temporarily and he was receiving millions of prayers in the form of email and couldn't begin to handle it. The point I am making, is that I don't believe it works that way. I believe we all have God within and in the same way you have a PC for a computer, or a PT for a personal trainer, you also have a "PG", personal God within, who handles every nuance and all aspects of your life. Things are all as they should be. Not necessarily the way we want and pray for. God won't change a greatly needed plan just to meet our prayers. Anymore than a parent would give a child what it "wanted" if they knew it wasn't good for them. Like Mick & Keith so wisely penned almost 50 years ago when they said "You can't always get what you want" but you get what you NEED. If we are watchful, we will find that we get what we need, even when a seemingly bad event happens. It is important to remember that these events are not being done to us. They are being done for us. This "PG" is not diluted in any way, even though there are 7 billion people on the planet. Anymore than a drop of the ocean is any different or any less in its essence than the whole sum. We all have this Divine spark within. We just need to be aware. It is always there for us if and when we need guidance and can come to us in the form of intuition or an idea. I just wanted to share that thought with you and if it happens to help even one person who may need to hear it today, then I am happy that my original thought of "helping others" prompted me to write this. David

Diana: I want to speak to you about "Greatness." I can only pray that you hear or feel what I have to say. Actually, before I get started, let me correct that statement. I can only "hope" that you hear or feel what I have to say. For all the praying in the world won't help if there is "nothing" nor would The Divine Creator need my help or require my belief in doing what is best for you if He/She does exist, which I feel strongly is the case, as we have talked about many times before. Well, back to"Greatness." Greatness, I feel, is one of the many overall qualities that you possessed. Both on and off the stage. You had the ability to uplift, brighten and enrich the lives of those you touched. I, being with you for so long and by your side for all those 4500 shows for example, became acclimated after a while, which is what is bound to happen. It is a form of becoming desensitized in a way and developing a relative scale from one to ten. So if I saw you on a day below "five", I could mistakenly perceive it as lacking or not up to par. I use the word mistakenly, as it was a mistake not to realize that even the "one" was great! Just not as great as "ten." But nevertheless all varying degress of Greatness. This is something that I have only come to realize since you have gone. No longer around you to compare you to yourself. Comparing one performance to another or and extraordinary day to an ordinary day. I wish that I had come to this realization sooner and told you while we were together, but as we always said, "things work as they are supposed to" and you can't be where you're not. Fortunately, part of that greatness still lives on in me and in others you have touched and is never lost. "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever lost. It would be both unfair of me and an injustice to you, to tarnish that greatness by being sad all the time since you've moved on. Each of us has seeds of greatness within. Some are fortunate, like you, to have developed it and done something with it as you were also given the desire to spread love and light with others. Sometimes after suffering great loss, the inevitable sadness which follows with bring many tears. And those tears can water the seeds which will take root and begin to grow. And much greatness will bloom. In that regard, even a seemingly bad event will produce much good. I feel you continue to help me and I am blessed for my beautiful past, my present and I'm sure many great things in the future. Things I cannot see but are on the way. Monetarily speaking, I may have little in my life. We have seen how that seems to come and go. But in ways which I feel are important and ways that truly matter, I am rich. And much of that richness is from the many experiences I shared with you.

If we could see the larger picture when a loved one passes, we would understand how even a seemingly horrific event is actually no more than a learning experience and is happening in the best possible way for things to work the way they are supposed to. First of all, you must take the position that Earth is a place to learn and is moreless a virtual reality and passing or crossing over will be no more than waking from a dream and returning to your true home. But that is better realized once you cross over. So back to how we interpret it from this end; If we could see all the many lessons as we experience the entire process. Not only lessons for ourselves, but lessons for the person that is actually going through the experience first hand. For the person actually going through an illness for example,they begin putting things in perspective and quickly get their priorities in order, realizing what is truly important and what is not. They see each day as a gift and no longer take anything for granted. All negative feelings gradually melt away as they realize those feelings mean nothing and are of no importance. They begin to see how much they mean to their loved ones who are concerned for them and if they didn't know it before, they know now how much they are loved. Those left behind think of all the many things they wish they had said and maybe too, that they had expressed their feelings better while they had the opportunity to do so. In and of itself, that is a powerful lesson which they can apply next time to other loved ones before it is too late. In the whole scheme of things, if you fast forward a hundred years and see how certain events were necessary to learn these various things, we would then come to realize that God did nothing wrong. The Divine Creator makes no mistakes. It only appears that way when you are looking at just a piece of the puzzle. But if we could pull back like "Google Earth" and see the overview, we would see how perfect everything is. Even those events which seem tragic. Everything is connected in one way or another and each and every ripple matters. But without the advantage of the big picture or aerial view, we, along with Theologians, search in vain to find answers and incorrectly blame God or simply do not understand. Saying things like, "The Lord works in strange ways." No matter how bad the nightmare, once you awake, and you realize it was just a dream, the suffering you encountered no longer matters. And if it helped make you or others a better person along the way and taught those that Love is everything, then it was worth it. I am sad to say that two good friends of ours that posted condolences on this memorial site have since crossed over. We simply must do our very best for the short time we are here and just love rather than judge one another on this planet, not that I am accusing anyone of being judgmental. For years I used to play a song instrumentally on the guitar, written by Nat King Cole. It was called "Nature Boy." Funny, it was only after Diana passed, that I looked at the lyrics and contained in them was one of the best lines I've ever heard. And to me, it sums up what life is all about. It says: The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return. Thank you Diana for helping to teach me so much in this life and for allowing me to do the same for you. Love, David

well today makes 29 weeks to the day since you left a body that failed you after many years of serving you well. sometimes I ask myself, why so young, but then I am reminded of the fact that you lived your life to the fullest degree possible. every moment. always on the go and enthusiastic about each experience. I watched people in awe of your energy for many years and witnessed first hand both young and old, rich or poor, happy to be around you absorbing those good vibrations, if only in small part. you truly did dance life where many others let life dance them, myself included much of the time. you used to talk near the end about being happy, safe and loved. I can only hope that you are experiencing that now, along with many new adventures. you know I wish only the best for you as I always did. love, light and happiness to you diana.

David - Like most people who have known you and Diana over the years, I was shocked and dismayed to hear of Diana's passing. When Doris passed away in September, the two of you called to console me. I had no idea what you were going through at that time. The two of you brought to your onstage and offstage lives two different personalities that gelled so well. In addition, you two were so giving of your time to me (and others, I'm sure), allowing me to sing with you and finally kicking me out of the nest, so to speak, to pursue my own dreams. Diane will be remembered and sorely missed by so many, who loved and adored the two of you. Stay in touch. You will get through this. If I can help in any way, you know how to reach me. Joey B

Dearest David, (and Diana too, because we know she is reading the loving messages too). Our hearts go out to you every minute of everyday. Your sweet Diana was beautiful inside and out. We enjoyed our times together. We always loved the two of you, before and we always will. There was never, never a moment that we did not have the utmost love for you both. "Life is Good". We enjoyed our quiet times together, our birthdays and gambling trip for my big 60... We always had fun. Diana and you always went out of your way to make us feel comfortable in your home and I remember she cooked our favorite and a dish for you just to make sure everyone was happy. She always remembered and really cared for us all. I told her that you and she were wonderful entertainers, but that I hoped that she realized that you two were making wonderful memories for us all to look back on. We have nothing but wonderful memories of the two of you and hope that things will get a little easier for you someday. I cannot imagine what you are going thru. You have a beautiful angel looking in on you, but then, you know that. Again, David, never a day passed that we did not love and adore you both. Love to you always, Corky and Carol Sheridan

Dear David - We just learned of your loss of Dear Diana today and were terribly saddened. Shocked also because we didn't realize that she was ill. You both brought us so much joy dancing at Fiesta Key, Duck Key, The Village Cafe and finally at Outdoor Resorts. Please know that our thoughts are with you. We are spending the winter at Outdoor Resorts again this year. If you find your way back to the Keys please let us know. We would love to see you. Merrill and Judy are now wintering in Punta Gorda so if you come back to the West Coast of Florida, I am sure they would want you to get in touch with them. Please keep in touch and let us know what you are doing. Love Phyllis & Rod

David, We have tried to find you on the internet for the past year. We drove by your house and talked to a neighbor who said he didn't know where you had gone. I checked your web site several times a month, hoping to see where you were. Now tonight I have found you and am so sad. Beautiful Diana. She was so good in so many ways. You were such good friends to us and we had so many great times together. I can't believe she is gone. I am so sorry for you. You were so dependent on each other. I hope she didn't suffer. We would like to hear from you if you feel like talking. Love, Pat & Jerry 239-404-0778

I am sorry that I said her husband had passed too, I read it wrong. I am so sorry for your loss of such a angel. She would always put wonderful thoughts on my my space. We were both into ET's and I would send her paintings I did..She loved the mermaids the best and I would call her a mermaid..she related to that because she loved to swim. Anyway, I know she is in the heavenly rhelm with her loved ones..expanding and awakened even more.

Dear David- Our hearts are so heavy to hear that our precious Diana is no longer with us. With tears we are writing to you. It's so strange that in January on our way back from the Tampa RV show, Fred said, we need to find out where Diana and David are playing up here and plan on staying over to enjoy their music again. You both are so special to us and when we tell people of our first date, we tell them what Diana told us later...that she could see "sparks flying between us" when we danced that first time. She had a wonderful insight into people. Words cannot express our sadness to receive your note. Diana was a beautiful lady, both outside and inside,,,always a kind word for everyone and what a sweet smile. We will miss her and sad we didn't get that opportunity to hear her sing one more time. Our sincere and loving thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Diane & Fred

We--Dan & Sunny (formerly dansun Entertainment) were so saddened by hearing about the passing of Diana. We remember when we met her out at Marker #17 while we were doing a karaoke gig that we had been doing for eight years and WHOOP here comes this Ray of Sunshine at me...Yes, it was Diana! She asked me for a mike and started singing HOT HOT HOT while walking around the pool area! Yes--she gave off so much ENERGY.. and told us that you two were moving to this area and we eagerly offered to help you get some gigs.....YOU 2 TOOK OFF FROM THERE. We gave each other SUPPORT and performed in many of the same places. Finding out that Diana was very metaphysical really drew me to her. We CONNECTED in an instant bond. I never saw Diana in a bad mood or heard any negativity from her! POSITIVE ENERGY is all you got when you were around her and that SPECIAL GLOW of LOVE. To you David and to her children and to all that knew and loved her---you are BLESSED. We shall miss her..... SING ON OUR SPECIAL ANGEL!

One of the saddest days in my life was hearing from David of Diana's passing. So gut-wrenching to hear the pain in your voice, but also the courage of acceptance also - your faith that her spirit still lives and still loves all of us, as we did her. One of the happiest days of my life was when the two of you moved into the apartment next to mine. At a rough time for me, Diana was like a ray of sunshine through a cloudy sky, always positive, always ready to help. You were fabulous too, including me in your circle of friends and fans. So much fun following you around, appreciating your music and Diana's glowing personality lifting everyone in the crowd - downtown gigs, gambling boat, more gigs up the keys, not enough, I realize now. Sharing fun and laughter, food and cocktails, philosophy and caring. Diana started a change in my life, something I knew was very important, but couldn't understand at the time. She smilingly said she wanted to share something with me - a book - The Course in Miracles. I was a confirmed aetheist then, but she gave it to me anyway. I still have it and it has changed the way I look at life and the world. She apparently saw something in me that I didn't see in myself. She WAS an angel, a wise angel. Thank you, Diana and David, for all you did to bring fun and laughter, music and friendship into my life. I pray that her spirit is soaring and free, enjoying the beautiful music of the universe, and that you will find peace and joy, as you had with Diana during her life.

So very sorry to hear the sad, sad news about Diana. David must be devastated and, hopefully, all of her wonderful memories will keep him going forward. I just can't believe it -- I'm always playing Diana & David's CDs -- just playing them has always helped me remember so vividly all of the great memories at the Village Cafe with all of you -- &, of course, Diana & David doing their great thing all those years -- making all of us so, so happy all the time. I don't think there is a person alive who could say anything bad about Diana -- she was a very special, caring person and I'm so sorry to hear this very sad news. Please pass this note along to David Much Love, Loraine (Loraine's email to Jo Cona, posted by David)

There is a new, beautiful, angel in heaven named Diana. We wish she was still here with us, but she is whole and out of pain. Diana was a part of all our lives here in Englewood, Florida. All who knew her, loved her. She only had to meet you once and knew your name a greeted you whenever and wherever you seen her.She had the most wonderful, bubbly personality. When she sang with David, the love for him and all she knew, and for life came through her voice. We were lucky enough to have David and Diana play for our 50th Anniversary Party, because they were both so personable. Everyone loved them, and they made it a very special day for us. During the time they were there I asked Diana to sing, "I need you now" by Lady Antebellum, she did an awesome job, it was beautiful. I wish there were more Diana''s in our world, her bubbly personality and the love she showed to everyone who knew her, certainly would make the world a better place to live. I feel proud and very fortunate to have known her and call her and David my friends. We willl all miss her . Diana, rest in peace and now you are an angel in heaven just like the angel you were to us. Diana, " I need you now" Love Always, Lee and Betty Nunn

The more I learn about my beautiful mother, the more I love the person she was. My son's very first tooth pushed through his little gums while visiting mom and David in Englewood. A stay at mom and David's was like being at a spa. Totally pampered! When I looked into my mom's eyes I could see angels swimming in those pools of light. Intoxicating. I was (and still am) so proud and honored to have come from such an amazingly vibrant soul. Mom You are still so very much alive through the wind that whips through these mountain tops,down the long paths I walk. In the laughter my son and I share. All of this is just part of the moment we have here. And in just a moment we will all eventually be there. I love you mom. I love you David.

Dear David, I am so deeply saddened to hear of Diana's passing. I can only imagine the pain and loss you are feeling. I read your memorial and it was beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. I was happy to read more about Diana and the life she had with her upbringing and her own children. I especially loved the phrase about "hope" that Diana had next to her bed...You were an amazing couple and lived an extraordinary life. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and I will let folks in Key West know about this. My best to you David...take good care of yourself. Lenore

David, When I remember Diana's lovely smile, I can feel God's love shining brightly through her soul. It seems like only yesterday that we were listening to you at one of our Friday Nite Live Concerts at First Presbyterian Church in Port Charlotte. Your special chemistry filled the room with joy and happiness. Diana certainly had the uncanny ability to make even the quietest soul tap their toes and sing for joy when she entertained. Our lives were enriched beyond measure by having the privilege to know both of you. We first met the Blue Byou tandem at Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda. After one of the performances my mom approached Diana and asked her if you ever performed at church venues; Diana responded with her usual bubbly answer so my mom proceeded to tell her more about the Friday Nite Live performances. We were so thrilled that you would work with us and that you shared your joy and love of music with so many. I can only imagine that Diana singing joyfully in God's choir of angels; for she was certainly an angel here on earth. To have known Diana, was to have known one of God's earthly treasures and gifts to all. Thank you for sharing yourself and your beautiful wife with us. Love, Betty, Dan, Ron and Christy Smith

Diane was my aunt, but because we were so close in age we decided to call ourselves cousins. We had many fun and happy times together as children. Diane had a great love for her pets. Every dog she had she named BoBo after her first beloved dog. I remember her taking a table spoon and scooping peanut butter out of a jar for us all to share. We all took a lick until she let BoBo have his turn too. Licking after a dog was not something I was going to do. Diane said "but its only BoBo, he likes peanut butter too." We were about six years old at the time. Another time we found one of her cats dead, she cried. We decided to bury the cat but Diane insisted on leaving his tail sticking straight up out of the ground so she could find him later. She always jumped up and down and screamed when we arrived at her house because much of the time she was alone without children to play with way out in the country. She would be overjoyed to have us there for our adventures. And adventures we did have, many adventures. We were all over the dairy farm doing everything we shouldn't be doing. Once we stole a pie out of the window of a little farmhouse and sat in the weeds and ate the whole pie. When the lady who baked the pie heard us she came laughing and invited us inside to have a drink also. We used to sneak into a little one room house we always referred to as the "Little House" and see what was there to eat and jump up and down on the bed. We got caught at this also but the man who lived there, a young man who was a writer said to come in through the door next time instead of the window. I think these people were so good natured about our naughtiness because they knew Diane as the little girl who always ran around happily playing, and she was such a joyful, spirited child they couldn't help but like her and forgive her. We couldn't swim but we would sneak out on a pond in row boats while my little sister stayed on the banks and watched for Indians. We loved to go to the corn field and get lost. After moving to the city we spent whole days playing in near by creeks. When we spent the night with Diane we would sneak outside in the middle of the night to ride her pony that was allowed to stay overnight in the backside before going back to his boarding home. Diane was never put out when my sister cried because she stepped in cow poop. She just patiently helped me to clean her shoes with a stick. When my little brother was with us Diane patiently became one of his big sisters and took her turn carrying him on her back. She adored him and was excited over every new thing he did as much as we were. Diane also loved my father and mother very much. Whenever we moved to a new house she spent the first night in the house with us. Daddy always told her she had to come and help us break the house in. Diane was kind always to animals and other children. She took up for the underdog. She wasn't always treated nice by other children. Sometimes we had wars that were us against the bad guys. Always she was very loyal to the people she loved and very kind. Her unselfishness and kindness along with her free spirit is what I will always remember the most. She promised to have a mansion one day with a built in pool and a bedroom in it for each of us. We believed her. But we all grew up and life took us in different directions. We always thought there would be time to visit and catch up, but there wasn't.

Hello David and I am so sorry for your loss. I only met you and Diana one time at the Englewood Elks, you both were very gracious and invited me on stage to sing. You were both such talented musicians and more than that simply wonderful people. I remember Diana, I don't think you could have met her and not remembered how she lit up the world, family and friends around her.

We were so saddened to learn of Diana's death, but we have reminisced about the wonderful evenings we spent dancing to your music at the Punta Gorda Elks. Diana had a way of lighting up the room when she entered it .... as we got to know you both, we realized that her light came from within and was so freely shared with everyone. Diana was truly a warm and wonderful lady and we feel fortunate to have known her. Your loving tribute to her on this website increased our knowledge of her and we thank you for that.

Dear David, you are so very blessed to have such a nice and warm person as Diana by your side and you shared so intense your gifts of music art together. That's just awesome. I enjoy very much just looking at all your nice pics together with Diana and listen to your music videos. What a great couple you are! You could teach us all that Life is to be lived now in the moment, when we can share our gratitude and gifts of Love to those who are close to us. All of us must take the homeward journey, back where we all came from.The way we think about this journey affects the manner of our departure. Looking at death with fear and trepidation makes our leave painful and fraught with tension. Understanding that nothing on this earth is permanent, however, enables us to live our lives more fully and to accept what is inevitable. Once we realize that we have a limited time in which to fulfill our promise and share the best of ourselves, our fear and negative feelings vanish. Acceptance of the Divine plan becomes the basis for living in preparation for our own departure. With Love and Light to you , Vesna

We were truly saddened to hear of the loss of a very special, very sweet and kind lady. We met David and Diana nearly 7 years ago, having just started in the local music business, and identified with them both immediately. I'll never forget, back in those early days, writing an email to Diana seeking a bit of advice. She responded with "since you asked so nicely..." and proceeded to give us great counsel and very helpful encouragement. In the times we encountered her, she was ever upbeat and positive, and constantly wore her charming "I know something you don't know" kind of smile. David, our deepest sorrow and sympathy to you, and to each of her friends, that we've all lost such a lovely, gentle and kindred spirit. Your friends, Rick and Debi Krieger

I met Diana when I was 14 or 15 years old, in Rappahannock County, Virginia. Her first child, Jonah, was an infant, and she was pregnant with Noah. Diana had a singular mix of earth mother/madonna and bad ass--if you'll excuse the expression! I remember how she looked you right in the eye when she engaged you, with a sparkling, affectionate warmth that was disarming and inspiring. Remember I was very young, and I was in awe of her beauty and her presence. I lost track of Diana, but know her children, who are some of the sweetest, vibrant, creative and friendly people you'd want to meet. I see Diana in them--especially in her daughter Celeste, whose physical carriage reveals that same childlike and inguisitive nature. Go in peace, sister. Mo Day

Diana was a favorite of so many of us. I loved calling her for appointments and I loved hugging her when she came for those appointments. She was so sweet and strong and loving and beautiful. I like getting her hats, and I was happy to give her my "miracles" bracelet, though a miracle was not to be. She was loved by many. And, I know she is singing for all of us in heaven.

David and Diana both spent so much time with me on a personal and friendly level. I felt like Family. my biggest dream was to learn to play and sing well enough to do just that on stage, and because of her overwhelming way of making me feel like i was doing something right, I did learn. it's because of her that my dream did come true. i do have a band now, Thanks to You Diana. You Are My Dream Come True. I'm sure that many others feel the same love for her as I. Diana, WOW.. So Full of Energy, Always having Fun and Smiling. A Big Lite. David You were right, Her Body is Gone, But Her Soul will Always be Here.........

Dear David, I am so very sorry about your loss! Diana was one of the most wonderful people, I have ever met! Her charme, enthusiasm and boundless energy was so mesmerizing and contagious! Especially on stage, where you couldn't help getting animated and dance the night away while enjoying her unique voice! She will truly be missed by so many! Our only comfort is all the good times and all those many smiles she has put onto so many faces! Including mine! Thank you Diana! For everything! Rock on! Til David comes to join you! Like he did in all these years!

I was saddened to hear of Diana's passing this morning. What words can I say to comfort her family? Never could figure that one out, and I have been stumbling with it for years. We were neighbors for a brief while back there in Grassy Key, then I saw a bit more of them when I worked on the Byouville website - that was taking $ under false pretenses. It was a joy to work with them and I well remember ole dour Dave beatin' on the Fender and this hot lady bouncing all over the stage. When she squeezed lemons for lemonade, Diana got 120% of the juice. She got the same out of life and gave the same to her friends and everyone she touched. Don

"Don't think of her as gone away, her journey has just begun. Life holds many facets, the Earth is only one. Just think of her as resting, from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days or years. Think of how she must be wishing that we could know today, how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of her as living, in the hearts of those she touched. For nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved so much." May you rest in peace, Diana Sonny and Sabella Gioia

Although I commented earlier; I felt compelled to express some thoughts of love and appreciation this day; as the spirit of Diana is still very much on my mind as I know it is with so many others. Diana, I have listened to the unique array of songs that your loving husband was gracious and resourceful enough to place on your website. Dearest Diana; you always had vision, timing and braveness to seek out and broaden your horizons and those around you. In ways, that many of us cannot see at this time, I truly believe your tenaciousness and fortitude is still shimmering bright as I type . It is time for celebration as we assess the entire picture of your life -- here on earth -- and beyond the great veil. Compared to eternity, all of us are here in what can be viewed as a 'blink of they eye.' I know you are still shining from up above; the same way you did before you incarnated on earth and the same way you did while on this earth plane (we call reality.) Your essence is alive and I sense that you can experience the level of my heartfelt vibration and love for you; even if it is not directly audible or readable in your mind's eye. I send you good vibes this day and forevermore. Be of strong spirit and know our hearts and souls send you love as we enjoy your high-spirited energy; which has helped to fill the souls of many. Perhaps some can take the time to reflect and glimpse the divine and eternal consciousness within us all; as we take temporary residence in our humanity and what we call our body. Gleam bright my beloved sister in spirit. ♥

We always love how much the two of you were in love, partners, and each other's "rock". It was so beautiful to see another couple so deeply in love and soul mates. We can only imagine the heartache, pain and loneliness you feel over the loss of one of God's true Angels. Our heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to you and your family.

Joy...spirit...excitement...exultation.....Those are the words that come to mind when I think of Diana. And BEAUTY....what a beautiful person, inside and out! All that is stilled, and the world is a sadder place for it. My heart weeps for its loss. She was such a vibrant and outgoing person, and gave to others her inner serenity. Her spirit lives on. I believe that. And there is no pain or sorrow where she lives now. Vaya con Dios, Diana. And god be with you, David. You were her love and her rock. With love and sadness, Chrissy Royse

I remember the nights you'd sing us to sleep, like a mother bird with a song so sweet, and birds will fly when givin' a choice, so when i needed some comfort i'd think of your voice. you gave us our names, Jonah, Noah, and Celeste, and you wrapped our warm bodies against your chest, and through all the sadness your passing has left, it's brought your three babies back to your nest. David, my mom was so lucky to have had you as her best friend and husband. You've always brought things into a clearer light for me, so i can only imagine how much of a difference you have made in my mothers life. Thanks for putting this memorial together for not only her, but for all the people who were fortunate enough to have known her. . With the Deepest Love and Respect, Her Son, Noah Waggener

We just came from the American legion and Billy Miller told us about Diana.

I have so much to say, but am failing to find words. I am, I mean was, a year or two younger than Diana. She and David and I crossed paths in our lives when we were in our lates 20s, early 30s. It was a critical time for me. And when I look back on my life, there is a very bright light that shines in my view, and that is Diana. I told David earlier today that I had never ever known Diana to not have a smile on her face. I am sure Diana had dark moments, as we all do. But it was Diana's way to illuminate the room with her optimistic manner. I would always feel better about everything after spending a few hours with Diana. --- I just re-read the foregoing words, and they are quite pitiful compared to the tribute Diana deserves. I shall re-visit this memorial when I have something more articulate to write. But I will share something that someone else wrote. George Carlin at times ended his stand up routine with the following - and I copy and paste it here because everything he says that we humans should do - Diana did during her life. Diana was an exceptional and remarkable human being. And I feel sick to my stomach that planet earth no longer has smile. Here is what George Carlin wrote: The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete. Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent. Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind. And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away. George Carlin

DIANA I have known an Angel. Not one who has her wings, This one smiles and lights the way And yes she also sings. You can’t help being happy, When ever she is near. So full of life and energy, That’s why she’s such a dear. When first we met her years ago, With David at her side, We knew she had a special glow, That she could never hide. The love she showed for every one, Both on and off the stage, Let us know she’s having fun, That’s why she’s such a rage. Alas; Her work on earth was done, And GOD has called her home. Her spirit lives to teach us fun, With it we’re not alone. Bob & Marjie Faulks

The earth shifted a little bit just recently, Leaving it changed forever and a day. Never to be the same, Never again to come this way. It was unexpected when my friend left, Just the other day. My heart hurts, my mind a fog and will only deny, I open my mouth to mourn and to speak, But can only cry. Woe is my spirit, woe is my loss Oh heavy was her cross, Always a laugh and a smile, Suffering inside all the while. The pain is gone, the suffering over, A day to rejoice and to sing, To fly away on gossamer wings. Tonight I will close my eyes and pray, My life was made better, touched by an angel, That you sent our way. Goodnight, Beautiful Person...sleep in peace.

Our dearest and close friend David. When we are children we are allowed to see what eludes us later in life. Diana never lost that ability. She always saw the true ‘spirit” of life. She was a person of perseverance, patience and passion. Her hand was always there if one was in need. She danced to a different drummer. We would be fortunate to be in that realm. When she said, “I just love you guys”, it was a mystical moment. The sparkle in her eyes told a story far beyond the simple words. We shall cherish the opportunity we had to know her, and her essence will be an integral part of us forever. She is not gone. She has begun another segment of her journey into the unknown. We shall meet again. Warmness and love……Doc and Sally

Diana was a beautiful shining soul whom I had the gift of knowing for well over thirty years. She was a dear friend and a wife to my twin brother. My heart goes out to all of her loved ones and those who were close to her. You all know who you are. My beliefs are such that I elect to envision her soul is still shining; having left her physical vehicle -- we call the body -- and ascended into a dimension, which is beyond our mortal comprehension. Diana’s spirit is/was so alive, so vibrant and unique. While in this temporal realm; Diana utilized her talents creating, entertaining and uplifting people from all walks of life. Take a moment and reflect on how your life may have been touched in a positive way by the earthly presence of this beloved soul. We all come into this world for different reasons and I believe Diana fulfilled her earthly mission in a multitude of ways. I know she changed the course of my life. I would not have spent the last nineteen years in Key West if it were not for her having put it on my radar screen when she and my brother moved here, back then, due to her desire for a change, or a new chapter in her life. I hereby avow that I believe Diana wants us to be happy and celebrate her life and the gift of our lives, too; rather than dwell in the past on what was. From a metaphysical standpoint; her eternal life is continually unfolding according to a divine plan beyond human perception as I sense that consciousness is ongoing. As I wrote, in 2009, ‘Birth and death are aspects of a timeless consciousness.’ So, let us smile and give thanks for having experienced the love and radiance and the multifaceted soul; we all knew as Diana. Let us send forth love and light to her divine essence as she moves on; in yet another chapter of her eternity.

David, I know I don't know you personally, but I am a longtime friend of Eddie's and have heard so much about you that I feel like I know you and Diana a little as well. I am so sorry for your loss. Your comment about Diana was so touching and heartfelt and the slide show is very good. She's beautiful! I enjoyed the music.Thank you for sharing via this site.

I love you mom! I still can't grasp that you're not here in body, that soft sweet voice telling me how much you love me and are proud . I needed to here these things from you, my mother. When I thought of you I thought of David, when I thought of David I thought of Mom. I could never get enough good positive feedback from the two. I trusted them with every ounce of my soul. Thankyou mom for staying clean and helping me on my journeys. Any resentments have been washed away with love and total respect in it's place. I am so thankful you got to watch me grow and bloom into the woman I deserved to embrace . Love you, love your lovin daughter Celeste

David, Can't tell you how shocked and sad I am. We lost touch when you left and I would check this website every week. She was one of the best and most spirtual people I ever met. I'm so sorry. God bless you both.......Randy.

Dave and Diana were not only the best entertainers we have ever known, but became very good friends. We will always remember the great time we had with you in the Keys, and also our last trip to Vegas. David, our hearts go out to you. Diana, I am sure you are singing with the angels. Love, Jean and Norval
