I will miss my dear friend Phyllis James she was special to me. I appreciated all our little talks while I cared for her over the years as her PSW. I loved her life stories about her singing all over the world. She was proud of her grandsons . It was special when I was with her . I joined the choir in my church because she said I could sing and it would bring me joy.
Thank you Phyllis for leaving me with so many good memories of us together I will

miss you but I know you are happier now.

Condolences to the family on the passing of a dear sweet lady. As a volunteer driver at the Whitby Senior Centre I had the distinct pleasure of driving Phyllis to her classes over the last several years. I was in awe of the musical career she had and shared with her husband especially the association they had with Charlie Chaplin. I will miss her and the great conversations we enjoyed.

I also have a very fond memory of bringing my mom, Chris and Adele to the Rose Theatre in Brampton to see her perform years ago.Hoping your memories of your mom are giving you comfort at this sad time. Sendings condolences and hugs.
