Happy Birthday Diane. We'll have a slice of cake for you today (and raise a glass of Fosters)!

Was watching F-1 last night and remembered that Diane was a major F-1 fan. She would get up at 4 a.m. if that's when it was on tv to watch it! Talk about dedication!!

M&I greatly enjoyed sharing F1 Montreal with Diane back in '05 ... what a happy person she was

Diane and I always reminisced about our F1 days at Watkins Glen. Wish I had known her back then. We would have definitely met up.

Steve received a plaque at MOT this year that he will get to Diane's partner, Jim Trembley. He commented that it was the same Miss Briggs her students knew that hung with him doing 110 mph on the Kanc and her enthusiasm for all things was irresistible.

The plaque reads:
In memory of Diane Briggs
The First Lady of the Northeast MINI Community
Tireless contributor to MINIsOnTop
She will be missed, but not forgotten

I hope we have nothing for Steve to do next year
