Dear family of Phyllis, we are so saddened to hear of her passing. She was such a sweetheart. We enjoyed our time shared at Boca Raton Fire Rescue where she and Harold volunteered. She always had a smile for everyone. May she rest peacefully, reunited with her groom. ❤️🙏🏼 Prayers for the family.

Hamonoff Family, This poem was shared with me at a time of loss and I share it forward.

Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way, which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, and pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is an absolute unbroken continuity. What is Death but a negligent accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well .
Written by Henry Scott Holland (27 January 1847 – 17 March 1918) was Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford

Dear Sue and Mark,
There are no words to express the sadness in our hearts. Phyllis was so sweet, extraordinarily kind, and an amazing trailblazer. Her beautiful soul is embodied by her daughter Sue who never stops caring for others. We extend our most sincere sympathy, love and friendship. We love you.

Dear Susan,
We were both saddened to learn of your beloved mother's passing - Baruch Dayan HaEmet.
"Aunt" Phyllis was one of a kind - compassionate, thoughtful, caring, and always cheerful. I so looked forward to the beautiful birthday cards she would send me year after year. I have saved all of them. Let the cherished memories of her time on earth help fill the deep void by remembering the things that endeared her to all who were lucky enough to know her.
May Hashem comfort you and your entire family among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
Shari and Alex Mandel

Heartfelt sympathy to the Homonoff and Florence families.
It is with a broken heart that I recall wonderful memories of "Auntie" Phyllis. Her beautiful smile, altruistic nature and loving disposition was evident to all she met. Those of us who had the great fortune to love her will always keep her memory alive in our hearts.
