    I never missed a show unless I was to far away from Pensacola. His program was not streamed.

  3. Alycia Holloway says:

    You got called home is all. Jesus needed your sense of humor and joyful heart. I have many happy memories when you’d come to the office. Always having a smile and a joke. Laughter that never quit! We are all so much better for having known you. You ignited happiness, a little light that will always shine, in everyone’s heart. Dianne, I wish I had some magic words to take this pain away. You’ve heard all the sayings we all say when a loved one passes. Just please know that I am praying for you. Praying for God to wrap his arms around you as you grieve. I’m so sorry that I can’t be there like I wanted, it’s impossible here. Love you guys. Please take care of you! Xoxoxo
