Dear Visitors ~

I didn't know Diane Marie Wilhelm so I can't offer any information about her life. I came across her headstone one day while visiting a local cemetery and was intrigued by the unusual epitaph. Judging from the unique sentiment left for Diane by her devoted husband paired with the bouquet of a dozen roses, both of which are permanently etched in stone for anyone passing by to see, one can only imagine the love and playful interaction between the two. I'll bet when he whispered those forever memorialized words in her ear he followed up with a wink and a jaunty grin. I would like to imagine that through this epitaph we have been given a little glimpse into the intimacies of a happy marriage between two young people who were very much in love. Sadly, the union was broken when Diane was called Home way too soon from the husband who obviously loved and cherished "everything" about her.

Regretably, I've gotten some negative feedback about this memorial, not only because I've posted it on F.A.G. with what some people feel is an "improper" epitaph, but I've also gotten feedback that included personal character attacks against the person who chose this headstone for Diane.

If you find this epitaph offensive to your own sensibilities, please be respectful of Diane's memory and mindful that her family and friends may someday see this tribute. The acclamation on her headstone is truly not for anyone to judge. We are merely outside observers who have been afforded the advantage through this website to view the thoughtfully written memorials and personal sentiments that have been posted on these memorial pages. In this case, the only thing that truly and definitively matters is the loving interaction between Diane and her husband, and their personal reasons for honoring Diane in a way that was meaningful to them. No one has any right to pass negative judgement about the person responsible for, or the reasons why those words are memorialized in stone for the ages. That is a confidential marital secret taken to the grave between Diane and her ardent husband, and that is where it shall remain, forever unblemished by unsolicited and unwarranted outside opinions.

I thank you for thinking of Diane and the one who loved her so, if only for a fleeting moment, and I thank you for taking the time to read this memorial. I hope your visit here reminds you of a time in your life when a young, loving, and playful relationship made you feel joyous, very much desired, and completely loved.



Many thanks to M. Richards for sponsoring this memorial.
