To the family that made me feel as if I really belonged to someone for the first time in my life. There are so many things I could say but the one thing that
I will choose to say is "Thank You Mrs. Phyllis for caring so greatly for Elizabeth and myself when it seemed that no one else did." You were always encouraging us to not let what others thought of us affect how we felt about ourselves. It was a hard task to live up to on a day to day basis, but we tried unendlessly to live up to your expectation of us. We hope that you and Herb are having a glorious reunion as I know you are.
