I was blessed to call Phyllis my friend. We met a Wright Health Associates many years ago and became fast friends. There were so many reasons to love Phyllis that if I tried to list them, I would fail to capture all. We had endless conversations and laughter when we were together, I loved her laugh. Love and devotion for her family was always in the forefront of her thoughts and our conversations. If you ask me what I will miss most about my friend Phyllis, I would have to say everything.....
Our blessings, prayers and love surround John, Michelle, Chad, Michael and the adorable grandchildren Phyllis dearly loved.
