I have fond memories of Phyllis as my older cousin. Phyllis, Vanita and Shirley visited my mother Billie often and I always felt each of them treated me special as one of the little kids at family gatherings. While I have not seen Phyllis and Bobby in over 30 years sweet memories of them come to mind. I know the Lord's comfort will bless all of you during this time and send my love, thoughts and prayers from my home in North Carolina.

I had the honor of calling this wonderful lady Aunt Phil, she was my mother's, sister, Vanita. They didn't live close but they called each other every week to talk and keep in touch. Uncle Bob and Aunt Phil would make trips to Arkansas and always stop by momma's to visit. I always enjoyed visiting with Aunt Phil and Uncle Bob, I will miss her and their visits so much. My mother loved her sister dearly and already misses her. Our prayers and love go out to the Scott family, she was a sweet Aunt and I know she was a gracious wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Rest in peace Aunt Phil, we will all miss you dearly. Love Pam Romine

Phyllis was a wonderful lady. She cared for Jason and Greg when they were little at First Baptist. Never heard her utter an unkind word - she cared deeply for her family and loved ones. A fabulous cook - and always ready to share her love and recipes. She will be a blessing in Heaven for sure!
