I am so sad to read of the passing of Phyllis. We became friends in the eighties and I always loved being around her. Phyllis was kind hearted and warm to be with. Her intelligence was evident in a subtle, non showy manner. I had not seen her since I moved away. You have my thoughts and prayers during your grief.

Sincere condolences on your loss. I never got to correspond with Phyllis, but she was a second cousin match on ancestry. Our great grandmother's were sisters.
