    Hi, I am the little girl photo bombing behind Diane and Leonard Owsley in their last picture around 3 mins in the video. I remember Diane brushing my hair and being sweet to me when we stayed with them. I last saw her at Dad’s funeral. Glad to see she went on to have a long life filled with love.
