"I was so sad to hear of Diane's passing. We have known each other since attending kindergarten together at Marsh School. She did my hair for many years at the Clip Joint and Electric Waves. Even though she stayed on the South Side and I moved to the Western suburbs, we have stayed in touch over the years through mutual friends. I am thankful and grateful that we had the opportunity in the past few years to see each other occasionally and get to catch up. I treasure her memory and friendship even though it was long distance. Danielle has lost a terrific Mom and many people have lost a wonderful friend. Rest in peace Di, God Bless you and keep you forever in his loving arms. "

Her and her partner hairdresser Bill always had me laughing (in stitches) and having a good time. Great times were always guarantee at the Clip Joint. Diane's personality was so vibrant and she always looked really good. My sincere condolences to all members of Diane's Family."

"My heartfelt condolences go out to the Bradich family on the passing of one of the sweetest persons I’ve ever met. My sister and I grew up right next-door to the Bradich‘s for 16 years so I know all of them and this is just a shock to me and I wish I would’ve had a chance to see her one more time to catch up & have a few laughs about old memories like we always did. God bless you Diane and may perpetual light shine upon you always. And may God give her family the strength during this difficult time."
