Personally, her death is the LAST thing that I want to remember about her.

Goodness--it all seems a bit morose, doesn't it? Remembering her death with such lingering sadness and sentiment is almost morbid. I think it is best to remember her life and celebrate it. That's what death is, isn't it? Yes, its the end, but it's also a celebration of a person's life. Personally, while not the biggest fan of Diana, the image of her that I can most relate to her that makes me smile is that of her running up to her boys and hugging them after they had been apart (she's in this red and black checked suit) and you can really see the love and enthusiasm she brought to motherhood. I'm sure that is how her children remember her as well.

Remembering her death is like remembering the saddest part of the story. I think it should be the day you recall the good stuff, whatever you liked about her. Would you prefer remembering the paparazzi pictures took after the car crash or the footage jcbcode99 mentioned? My choice is made.

How right on you are jcbcode99, today really isn't a sad day, it's a day of remembering the life of this woman and not her death. My favorite memory of the Princess is when she was in the mother running race back in 89 or 90. I will always remember the image of Diana running to the finish line with the wind blowing through her hair and this big smile on her face.
My second favorite image was when she walked in the landmine field in Angola the trip was simply amazing.

I looked through some early ROYALTY mags that a friend of mine recently sold me. Those were the days, when she was Lady Diana and then a very young wife and mother. I enjoyed remembering those times today.

Finally! I found a youtube link that shows the footage of Diana running to meet the boys.

I am still looking for a photo of the mother's race--that was such a great picture of her. Don't get me wrong--I love all the pictures of her in the gowns and the jewels but even with the world at her feet and priceless jewels of the incomparable Queen Mary upon her head and neck she looked her happiest with her boys. That's the Diana I miss-the mother. I can sit back and criticize her role as the PRincess of Wales, the dissolution of her marriage, engage in the ever raging Camilla/Diana war--but I cannot criticize her as a mother. She was a fantastic mother and those are the pics I love of her. Her sons don't miss the woman in the jewels--they miss the mother who used to give them nose kisses.

Now that I'm much more calm(I was really upset last night I think it really hit me how long it's been that's why) I have to say some of my fave Diana footage was her and the boys at Thrope Park and she was laughing her head off, I just loved it.

Awesome work, TheTruth! I looked and looked and looked. I think those photos completely capture her exuberance for motherhood. It's a timeless image. Like I said, I love seeing the outfits and the jewels but this is the Diana that make so many love her.

I was very disappointed in myself. I remember to pray for her at church that morning and then I got busy and forgot, what with it being Labor Day the next day. I remembered right around midnight but I didn't light the candle because I was afraid I'd fall asleep and burn the house down.

Well that'd be too bad to kill yourself by burning in your house for wanting to remember someone who is already dead.

I usually light a candle the night she died.This year I have been in the Ritz hotel of Paris visiting it and, I was all the time, thinking of Diana and trying to imagine Diana in the hotel.It is very sad.I admire her.She was a marvellous person.

I light a candle for Diana, Princess of Wales each year and will continue.

I think her boy's tribute on the tenth year was closure for a lot of people and in the you tube video: it shows less tributes out at KP.

I remember very well this day, as if it was yesterday.
I coul not believe it. And of course how we all cried at her funeral, especially these two boys walking alone behind the cuffin. And this word "mum" at the envelop..
I also have many thoughts for her, waching William's wedding. How proud she should have been for her two babies, who are now two wonderful men.

RIP Diana
