Dianne Marie Hervey wrote from her home near Boston to say that although she has most recently worked in the business world, she also sings and plays guitar in coffeehouses and in concerts occasionally. She said: “I prefer to sing my own compositions, which are all based on Bible Scripture and my experiences of the love of the Lord in my life.” At a memorial Mass in May 2009 for her late mother, Gwendolyn Hervey Lawson, Dianne Marie sang a song she had composed in her mother’s honor.
