I am so sorry for your loss. What a fascinating woman. I'll be getting both of those cookbooks! She lived her life to the fullest, not a follower but a leader. Her contributions to the community are a testament to her faith. I thank her family for sharing her with us all. She will live in our hearts and minds forever. What a beautiful soul both inside and out. May God bring you peace and comfort at this most trying time.

In a very short span of time, the world has now lost a second Queen. Dianne was the Queen of so many things, thoughts, how to treat other people and friends. This Queen also will live on in the heart and soul of many, including me. Condolences to all of the family and the community that grieves her loss.

Ouachita Parish has lost a bright light. I always felt that Dianne was a special friend. She and I shared a love of Clementine Hunter's work and the love of gardening. I am saddened by the fact that we will no longer hear her Southern voice or enjoy her bright smile.

I did not know Diane I wish I had. First let me say she was a true Southern Lady. So many hearts are grieving for Dr. Cage and their family. Lean on each other and GOD.
SUSAN ALLAIN left a message on October 13, 2022:
My love to all of Dianne's family during this time. I loved Dianne dearly. We both worked at KNOE together. I remember the floor crew loved the days she shot her show in the studio because it meant they were in for some good food when the show was over. Our lives have crossed many times over the years and she was always her joyful, cheerful self. I watched her cook in her kitchen and enjoyed our interactions while she cooked. Her importance to this community can't be measured particularly when she led the charge to save Georgia Tucker school. Prayers of comfort, grace, and peace to her family and everyone who loved her as I did. Rest in peace Dianne. You will truly be missed.
Gary Miers left a message on October 13, 2022:
My heart is indeed saddened to hear of the passing of my dear friend. Diane and I go way back to the days of her show on KNOE. We shared many stories, many cups, many friends. I always looked forward to cutting up with Diane and Mary. My day was brightened when she'd just give me a phone call...say hi and chat. She is and has always been a star in my sky. My sincere condolences to Mike, Diane's family and other friends.

Christian Amy left a message on October 12, 2022:
I was so saddened to hear our lovely Ms. Dianne passed away. I only had one or two interactions with her, and I was a small boy at the time. At the time and in a room full of adults, she always made an effort to speak to me and at one point showed me around her lovely home with such warmth that I’ve never forgotten the interaction. Her grace and kindness will be missed, but she leaves behind such wonderful memories and a lovely legacy. My sincere condolences to her family and friends.
