  1. Dear Cousin, Diana:
    So many memories are brought forth now. Your basement apartment in Chicago – having your own bedroom since you were the only girl! (lucky you). Your Fantastic wedding – especially dancing since I was so young and in love with your beauty. Staying overnight at the farm (Grampa Joe’s…then your Mom’s.) And visiting with you at the many Kurianowicz family reunions. Your cooking was greatly appreciated….yum. Diana – I will meet you in Heaven and I pray you will show me around. You will be missed but not forgotten. Love you, Cuz. Tina Hass

  2. We will miss you! The memories will always be with us. Until we meet again! Love your daughter and the Tochor boys. Song for you Mom!

    I can only imagine what it will be like
    When I walk, by your side
    I can only imagine what my eyes will see
    When you face is before me
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine
    Surrounded by You glory
    What will my heart feel
    Will I dance for you Jesus
    Or in awe of You be still
    Will I stand in your presence
    Or to my knees will I fall
    Will I sing hallelujah
    Will I be able to speak at all
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine when that day comes
    When I find myself standing in the Son
    I can only imagine when all I would do is forever
    Forever worship You
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine
    Surrounded by Your glory
    What will my heart feel
    Will I dance for You, Jesus
    Or in awe of you be still
    Will I stand in your presence
    Or to my knees will I fall
    Will I sing hallelujah
    Will I be able to speak at all
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine hey ya ah
    Surrounded by Your glory
    What will my heart feel
    Will I dance for You, Jesus
    Or in awe of you be still
    Will I stand in Your presence
    Or to my knees will I fall
    Will I sing hallelujah
    Will I be able to speak at all
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine hey ya ah
    I can only imagine yeah yeah
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine ey ey ey
    I can only imagine
    I can only imagine when all I will do
    Is forever, forever worship You
    I can only imagine
