How could I forget the wonderful Bogan’s? Phyllis, You and Dr. Bogan were our neighbors in Foxchase for a number of years and we loved every moment. I have so many fun memories of the four of us laughing, gardening, going out for meals, talking about our wonderful families. We made a trip to a special event near your lake home one time where we met your friends and attended a wonderful festival.
One time, we had a visit from our young nephew/God son who had a very loose tooth and was scared, so we grabbed his hand and walked next door to your condo where wonderful Dr. Bob went to his dental cabinet, took out his famous tools and removed that baby tooth. What a wonderful and precious moment that was. I remember when the Bogans decided it was time to move to a retirement center....we were stunned that such an amazing and vivacious couple would leave, but visited you many times in your new home. I remember so sadly when our beloved Bob passed....and then a few months ago I called you and knew that your memory was failing. My Walt now has Alzheimer’s disease and loosing your memory was a sad time as it has been for us. I was so sad when I saw your picture and know your wonderful family really miss you, but know they have many blessed and joyful memories of you. Phyllis, you are now sharing your wonderful laugh, great smile again with the love of your life, Dr. Bob! God Bless you Dave, Mike and Barb and your families. Your mom was such a special lady!

I remember the first time I met Miss Bogan, I was to help her take walks around her neighborhood. She was full of spunk, had loads of humor and a very pleasant personality with a smile and laugh to match. I think we hit it off right away and what turned into a first encounter being a caregiver ended up over more than five years of caring for this beautiful spirited lady who became not only a good friend but family. I will keep you in my heart always Miss Bogan and to You David, Mike and Barb, who I know and those of you that I don't know. I'm so very sorry for you loss and I pray that you stay safe, strong and love one another as Miss Bogan loved all of you and then some. God bless and be with each one of you. Kim English
