May you find comfort in knowing she is at peace. I always enjoyed both your parents coming into the post office and taking the time for a visit. It seemed one was always taking care of the other. Glad there together again. but sorry for your loss

Dear Aunt Phyllis, you will be missed by your children, grandchildren and all of the extended family. I felt my life enriched by growing up across the road from all of you, your wonderful ability to bake is a warm fuzzy memory! Dear Uncle Herb will have met you now and no more Alzheimer frustrations to plague you. You are free of all earthly worries and cares and have earned your place at the Lord's table on High.

Your Dad and Mom are dancing together now! Let those who surround you provide comfort, strength and faith. GOD bless Phyllis's memory and GOD bless all of you. Don & Michelle Murray
