Diana was my first writing teacher at the University of Buffalo. She was so kind and generous and patient with a student who didn't even know if she was writing fiction or non-fiction. We kept in touch over many years and her letters of news and encouragement were always a joy to receive. I send deep blessings to her family. Her memory will always be a blessing to me.
