From her grandson Hobbes: Gran loved Coca-Colas and M&Ms. I remember when my family would go to the Soda Shop in the summer with are cousins and Gran. We even have pictures of going to the Soda Shop. Every time I go to the Soda Shop I think of Gran. Gran had a sweet smile every time I saw her. She looked so comfortable when she slept. Love you.

Whether it was carpooling to Brumby, writing our AP history papers, or telling me to eat my green beans, I am so blessed to call Diane Raymer, my second mom. Below are some of my cherished memories with Diane and the Raymer family: • On the rare occasions when it would snow, Diane would catch our gloves and scarfs in the cold air, as we rode super-fast on Mr. Raymer’s sled, aka, the back of his giant lawn mower. • Halloween was one of our favorite holidays. I remember us laughing so hard, when “trick or treaters,” would walk by the front door and nearly have a heart attack. This was because Mr. Raymer would be standing behind the bushes, revving his chainsaw (with no chain) at a deafening volume making all of us jump in the air! • Almost every school day, from K-12 grade, I would walk into the Raymer’s kitchen, and go straight to the refrigerator to grab one of her cold Cokes….and she would say, “Kristi, only one.” • Many times, at 10pm at night, she would be typing our histories papers in the bonus room. She would say many times, “Ryan, Kristi, is this really due tomorrow?” • Sitting around kitchen table, she would say, “What homework do you have tonight? Let’s not wait too late to get started. Eat your green beans.” In closing, thank you, Diane, for all your love and support over the years. You made my childhood so special. I know you are with Richard and looking down at your beautiful family and grandchildren. We love you. We miss you.

I have good memories of going over to the Raymer’s home for dinner and Dianne made me feel like I was a part of the family. There was always great stories from Richard, Dianne, Ryan and April and cousin Larry and some good cookin’ too. Dianne was always so kind and I know it was truly who she was because she stayed that way all of her life. I am also encouraged that I will see her again one day….heaven gets to enjoy her company now and she gets to be with Richard and her loved ones and the Lord.

Dear Raymer Family, Northside Church is so very sorry over the loss of Ryan's mother, Dianne. I just want you to know that we are lifting you up in prayer as you celebrate Dianne's new birthday, where she went home to be with the precious Lord who made her. From reading your kind descriptions of her, I know that it must have been a grand celebration as she seemed like such a "good and faithful" servant. Your memories are such a witness to your sweet family and show vividly that she has left a beautiful legacy. I am blessed by reading your sweet memories. Thank you.

Mattie: Gran was very nice and that she loved Coca Cola's like me. Even when she got old that she couldn't understand us, she always listened to us and I knew she heard me in her head. Gran was always kind and caring for others. I could tell she had a great personality and she was once really helpful. I hope she has a good life in Heaven.
Pace Raymer left a message on October 2, 2023:
From Pace: I loved Gran and she was a great Gran. She was always talkactive but sometimes tired. I liked her most when she was talkactive and happy. She was never sad. She was a brave person and very loving. I am glad she's with Jesus.

Gran was a amazing person to be around and she loeved everyone. She was always talking about her dad and how great he was. She loved coca-cola, she was always drinking them. She loved watching TV and going outside. She never liked cutting her nails, so aunt April would have to come while she was asleep and her cut her nails.
Ryan Raymer left a message on October 2, 2023:
My mom was such a great person. She helped me with homework (usually overdue and late at night :)). She supported me and April (tons) with soccer that including driving and flying all over the states to help meet our dreams. Her light was soo bright and led to an enduring Christian faith that carries on with our kids. We will never forget her chomping on ice to annoy my dad and the joy she got from a Coca Cola and crackers. Her generousity was contagious and she shared it with all she encountered and never asked anything in return. It's an incredible joy that I know that she is now with the all lasting enduring light of Christ and reunited with her mom, dad, husband, sister and soo many others she helped find their own peace. Luv u mom forever and always, Ryan :)
