#1 To a Beautiful FamilyTanya Roberts 2017-03-30 17:19
Phyllis will be deeply missed in this world. I am comforted by the fact that I know in my heart that she is now at peace and sits with our Lord and Savior. I pray the family can find comfort in knowing this also. She loved you all so much and she will continue looking down upon you with a gleam in her eye to let you know she still sees you and what you are up too. HaHA!! You are like family to me and I will keep you close in my thoughts and prayers. I look forward to catching up with Phyllis when I get to go home and be with the Lord also. If any of you do not know HIM I ask that you close your eyes and listen for even a moment and answer His call. Amen and Peace be with you ALL. XXX's
