"My husband Roland and I have taught our sons what my mother taught my brother and sister and me: giving is what it's all about," Diana said. "My mother always gave a portion of what she had to those who needed assistance in helping themselves. She has passed away, but she is still here, in the lessons she not only taught, but lived every day of her life."
