    Mr. Dillard and family,
    I worked with Diana at the airport but got to know her when she was still with APD. She was always fun to chat with and she will be sorely missed.

    Ray, you have my deepest sympathy. I’ve known Diana since she started working as an officer for APD. She would stop and chat with me. And she enjoyed the dark chocolates. She will always be remembered.

  5. Ernest Ramsey says:

    I had the honor and pleasure to work with Diana for many years as a police officer. She was a dedicated and caring officer. I also know her as a loving and devoted wife and mother. My wife and I had the honor along with many other friends and family to attend her and Ray’s wedding five years ago. I remember her being so happy and crying tears of joy during the ceremony. I know her husband, son and entire family are devastated by this loss. I know now she is with God waiting for the moment when she will be reunited with all her family. I will miss my sister officer more than I can adequately express. My God hold you in the palm of his hand. Diana your 10-42.

  13. Kim Snyder says:

    To Diana’s Family:

    We had the great privilege of knowing Diana through my brother Ken. Over the years it was always wonderful to see her joyful smile and bubbly personality pop onto the computer screen next to him. Subsequently, she became one of our biggest supporters and cheerleaders with our recent move from California to South Carolina.

    We are immensely thankful for the laughter and camaraderie we have shared together. We are also beyond grateful to know that Diana, a person of this caliber, was someone my brother was fortunate enough to work with.

    As you navigate the coming weeks please know you will be in our daily prayers. Wishing you ease, comfort and moments of happy memories to sustain you.
    Kim, Tim & Connie
