So sorry to hear about Phyllis. She was my second cousin and had not seen her in many years. Hope all is well with her family.

I’d like to send my heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your mom.
Your mother was one of the sweetest women I’ve ever known and had
a heart of gold.
Feeling blessed to have such wonderful, childhood memories of your mother and family.
