I MET PHYLLIS AROUND 34 YRS AGO. HER COUSIN RO BROUGHT ME TO HER HOUSE TO MEET HER. IT WAS JUST BEFORE HER WEDDING AND SHE SHOWED US HER WEDDING DRESS THAT DAY.
WE BECAME VERY CLOSE ODDLY ENOUGH WHEN SHE MOVED TO FLORIDA. THE THREE OF US (RO -PHYLL-AND I) WOULD GO ON SKYPE THREEWAY AND TALK FOR HOURS. PHYLL AND I WOULD STAY ON SOME DAYS ALL DAY AND JUST LEAVE THE SKYPE OPEN--WE WOULD LAUGH AT ALL KINDS OF THINGS.
PHYLL CAME TO NY AND STAYED WITH ME I'M GLAD WE HAD THAT TIME TOGERTHER. WE WENT DOWN THE CITY TO A CHARITY FUNCTION LAURA WAS HAVING AND PHYLL WON 3X FROM THE RAFFLES--SHE DONATED 1 BASKET BACK AND THE 50 BUCKS SHE WON. SHE WAS A VERY GENEROUS AND LOVING PERSON.
PHYLLIS AND LINDA TOOK ME TO A.C. AND TREATED ME. WE HAD A GREAT TIME. LAUGHED ALL THE TIME.
I WILL MISS MY SKYPE BUDDY SO MUCH. REST IN PEACE NOW WITH YOUR DAD AND BROTHER ANTHONY--I WILL SURELY MISS YOU
MY DEEPEST SYMPATHIES TO DAVEY-GLORIA-LINDA-GARY-NICOLE- PETER-AND CAROL--MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU AS WELL AS MY PRAYERS

I’ve known Phyllis from when I was a child when she lived next door to my grandmother and then we both moved across the street from each other..Her and her family were like my own family..Phyllis was my best friend..We had many laughs together as well as tears. Even though she moved to Florida, we always kept in touch. Loved when she came to N.Y to visit, we always had so many laughs reminiscing the old days and crazy things we did.. She comforted me when my daughter died, as if I were her sister..She was a kind, funny, beautiful person. Always smiling and laughing. My heart is broken. I loved her.. To her wonderful family, I give my deepest condolences..She will always be by your side and forever in my heart ❤️
