I am the grandson of Roy Phillips only got to meet her once at a family reunion. She seem to me to be a very kind and loving person loved by her family I know that they all are celebrating in haven right now. My brother Richard went to Jackson to meet her and she shared family stories with him and pictures. I am the last of four boys but oh what a reunion the Phillips family are having right now.
May God be with each of you and Bless you in your time of need
