  • Tyrone and Diana were two of the greatest people ever. I was lucky to be related to them both. I remember them coming to my basketball games even if they weren't feeling their best...they were always there to cheer me on. Even with all the health problems they each had they never gave up and were always smiling. You could see the love between them and how they cared for each other through the good times and the bad. I will miss them both and pray that they are finally back together in heaven in healthy bodies. I am thinking of their family and hope that they get the comfort they need through this tough time. I wish I could be there for the funeral but know that I will be praying for them through this difficult time. Martha Heisler-Parrish
