Diane and I reconnected when she moved to New York.  I was raising my family in Jersey, and she would come and stay the weekend.  I lived the summer of 1999 with her in Montclair, NJ, as my condo wasn't ready.  We had such fun, gallavanting around the county, having lunch out at the Shoebox or Pal's.  She was a very dear friend, and I will sorely miss her.
