Phyllis' passing will leave a huge void for those of us who loved her. She was one of the kindest people I have ever known. When my parents, Phyll's aunt and uncle passed, she always provided words of sympathy and shared memories of mom I would never have known. Just hearing her say how much she missed my folks have me such comfort. So, in that same Spirit, I want Phyll's daughter and sons to know how very much we will miss her and hope it helps them navigate the loss of their precious mother.

She was chosen on Christmas Day as I believe only Angels are called home on this blessed day, she is no longer feeling discomfort and she was like a mother to me GOD BLESS and may your soul enter the Kingdom and reunite with all those on the other side with whom you loved. Kim
