  In Memoriam
Diane Disney Miller was an elegant, soft spoken, remarkable woman who carried her family's legacy with grace. We were fortunate to have known her. She enriched the lives of the Disney family with her generosity and her undying support of our vision. May she rest in peace knowing that she brought so much to so many with her personal style and representation of her father's genius. We will miss you, Diane, but you will always be a part of what we do at Disney because you believed in us. And dreams do come true. ~ 11/13/2013
