To the family,

Aunt Phyllis was one of the most awesome woman I have had the pleasure of knowing in life. We shared many happy moments together through flowering, Albion BPW, and sitting for quite conversations. It has been a couple years since I've seen her but she was on my mind often. Phyllis loved all of her family and friends and she showed it in everyday little things.

I pray that happy memories of her bring peace to your hearts during this difficult time.
