Mel and Marilyn, I am still in shock that she is no longer with us. I am so sorry for not making it today. But I got to say my last goodbye to her on Friday. I will miss her so much. It was so hard walking in this week and not hearing her voice asking me if i am behaving and if I ever get to sit down. I know she is having a blast up there with everyone. Love you both and thinking of the two of you often. Molly

Feisty...Determined...Loyal...Proud. These are all words that I think of when describing Phyllis. Those traits were never more obvious than when she was cheering on her beloved brother, MELVIN, at his high school basketball games. You always knew where Phyllis was sitting! God be with you, Phyllis.
