  • Even if her childhood was not marked by poverty as some sources claim, Diane was not the happiest teenager as she did not have a strong relationship with her family. Moreover, Diane was estranged from most of her relatives and hadn’t spoken to her mother for the last 15 years of her life, while also refusing to attend her mom’s funeral.

  • Tex and Diane started dating soon after meeting, got married in 2005 and shared a beautiful love story. The story ended tragically 16 years later when Tex shot his wife dead in their SUV.

  • Instead of the usual flowers that are brought to a funeral, her obituary indicated that people who attend it could consider donating to the Shepherd Center or Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta – one of the places Diane cared about very much.
