A beautiful heart stopped beating today
hands that worked hard all her life are at rest
It really broke our hearts to see and let you go
You asked us to let you go in peace, you told us what was best.

people say the memories we have are so wonderful
And I know in my heart that is so very true
But I have to say in loss and grief, selfishly I only wanted you.

Your life was filled with hard labour, giving and joy.
Your love for your family and friends was so deep and true
You did your best for all of us and told us what we needed to hear
Though our hearts are deeply broken we will never forget the presence of you

We sat beside you at your bedside begging you to stay
Our hearts were so confused, crushed, and sore
We did what you asked of us until the very end
Until you made it clear to us, we could no longer do any more.

In tears we watched you slowly leaving
As we watched your every breath fade away
And though our hearts were breaking
We knew you could no longer stay

There are no words to say how much we loved you
Our hearts cannot put into words how we felt or what to say
Only God know the pain we feel and the loss that is unreal.
We cannot explain how lonely our home feels without your presence today.

As I think of you Phyllis it puts a smile on my face. I will always remember our little social get togethers. Never a dull moment. You were a true inspiration and role model. "There is no pain so great as the memory of joy". Rest in peace Phyllis .

So many joyful memories of time spent with my fun-loving Aunt Phyllis. She loved family, loved a party, and she was a woman of faith who loved God. After a life well lived, she is in His hands. We are sad for ourselves, her family and friends, but have faith that she is happy today.

Lorraine and family, we are so very sorry to hear of the sad passing of your beautiful mam Phyllis. She was just a joy to know and was so very kind to our family and Brendan and Helen and myself had a most wonderful time staying with herself and Manny many years ago in Florida. She will be missed terribly by her family both here in Ireland and of course Florida. Sending condolences to yourself, Joan, Nuala and all of the extended family. Rip.
