Classes of 1968 to present
Diane will be missed. I grew up across the street from her and her family. They were a wonderful family and good friends.

I have just seen the website for the first time today. When I saw my friend Diane Walling's name In Memoriam, I was stunned. I last saw Diane in Houston in the late 80s, but we lost touch in later years. We had lots of fun with her large family, riding in their gigantic station wagon off to Grosbeck, Texas, where we visited her grandmother and saw "Bonnie and Clyde" at the Grosbeck Theatre. We used to sit up on the roof at her house, listening to Rod Stewart's "Gasoline Alley" album and watching the world go by. Diane had lots of crazy costumes, including a real Indian sari, which she knew how to wrap. She was very adventurous, and once dove off a high bluff into a river on a dare. She was also an amazing ballet and modern dancer. On my 16th birthday, she took me to a health food restaurant down in the Montrose area for a surprise dinner and had them sing happy birthday to me. When we graduated, her Mother had a few girls over for a special dinner. Mrs. Walling had decoupaged our graduation invitations onto little oval frames so we could save them. Diane was a one of a kind lady. Our principal, Sherri Billing, once told me she thought Diane would lead an influential life. I hope she is dancing out there somewhere. God go with you, Diney.
