To all of you,
I am so very sorry on the passing of Phyllis. I am also so very sorry about finding this out such a long time after. Phyllis and Jim were such amazing friends to my parents, Joe & Kate Gendron. Phyllis herself called me many times after my Mom died just to chat and to make sure we were all doing ok. I have missed those chats very much. She was a wonderful woman and again I am so sorry to hear of her passing.
