Rodney, Adrian, Alicia, and Amber:
We'll miss Phyllis and her lively commentary and dedication to family. Will remember her love of decorating, interest in reading (read the "Great Books" series from Encyclopedia Britannica) and hospitality. So hard to say good-bye, but trust that Phyllis is no longer in pain and burden. She loved the angels so our prayers are that she is with them now.
Love, Karen, David, Will, Beth and Mark
