Our family was particularly blessed to know Lily. she and Al were life-long friends of the family, and Lily worked with our children when they were young to help them learn to read. She was such a sweet, patient and loving person.

I’m sad to hear of Mrs. Diegel’s passing. She was my second grade teacher in the 70’s at Saratoga. She was a wonderful teacher and inspired a lifetime of learning in me. A real treasure!
