Phyllis (I called her 'Nanna') was truly a great blessing to this world, and will be sorely missed. She treated me as one of her own, and was as sweet as her 'granny-candy'. Smart as a whip, yet as kind and gentle as God's Love, she made a huge difference in my life. We had long, deep talks about life, love, and the Lord. She shared with me her wisdom of years, and her awesome talent in the culinary skills. If you left her house hungry, it was your own fault! I'm praying for her and her family as they suffer such a great loss. You are deeply missed, Nanna.

My second mother. Helped in raising me with love and affection. I lived next door during my high school years. She treated me like a son. Helped me me more than I could ever repay. Treated my children as her grandchildren. I will miss her memories and her knowledge of my family.
