I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember Phyllis so well when we were going to school. She must have gone to Duffield at least for a while when we walked there. I remember when she worked at the Farm Club in Humphreys. I went with Joan to see Donna June when she was just born. I will be thinking about you during these next few days. She was such a kind and hard working woman. Janice

Jim, I'm sorry to hear about your mom. I didn't know her well, but she was always so pleasant when she would answer the door when I would drop by your home. I value both you and Pam's friendship and all you have done for me, Andy & Alex. Call on me anytime for anything....Mike D.
