My belated sympathies to the family on the loss of your mother and grandmother. I was searching for Phyllis' address to notify her of the passing of my own mother Olive G. Callahan of Elk Point, SD on May 30, 2013. Phyllis and my mother attended Akron High School at the same time and married 1st cousins - Pat Callahan and Bernard Callahan, respectively. Pat and Bernard had lived together with Bernard's parents in their senior year of high school and about the same time started double-dating Phyllis and Olive. It's only been recently when Phyllis and my mother no longer communicated by phone and letters due to infirmities of age. Both had 3 sons of about the same age so in some respects they had similar life experiences. With their passing an era has ended but I fondly remember the stories told about the good times Phyllis, Pat, Bernard and Olive had on dates in their youth. May God bless them all.
