Dear Kathy and family, your mother always made me laugh at all the functions I attended, either st Kathy’s house or at Nick’s wedding. I am going to miss how she enjoyed poking you Kathy, always made me chuckle. Condolences to the whole family.
My deepest to all of you in the passing of Phyllis. She and I went to school for twelve years at St. Mary’s. She is in my prayers and memories.
Best Godmother ever. She and Larry constantly communicated love and doctrine from childhood through my current old age. Never went a year without a wonderful Christmas card filled with lots of detail on the year gone by. Phyllis will truly be missed and always lovingly remembered. May perpetual light shine upon her and may her family be consoled.
