It has many years since I have seen Phyllis. She is my first cousin. Her mother was my dad' sister. We went to school together until they went north and I went South. I' so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with the family.

My greatest memory is when I would come over on Mondays, we would work puzzles, you’d make us an amazing dinner, and grandpa jack and I would watch wwe. You loved all of us and loved cooking our thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.
