A humorous last wish of Diane’s was to give those in attendance of her funeral service the opportunity to acquire ownership of her newer model Volkswagen Beetle or a car of similar make/model and year. After her estate is settled, the new owner of a VW Bug will be chosen at random, based on Guestbook signature and attendance at Resthaven Funeral home, South Oklahoma City.
