So saddened to read about Phyllis' death. We go back a long way. In the 9th grade we became friends and were friends all through high school and beyond. We had some hilarious times together. Used to spend the night with her and remember her Mom's wonderful pies! My utmost sympathy to the entire family.

Phyllis was part of our fun group of gals at Gentry Estates in Columbia. She was fun at all our parties and just to be around. She will be so missed.

Our condolences to her family, especially Kim's family. She was so proud of you and her grand children.

Sorry to hear about Phyllis. She was a year younger and Jim was a "big boy" when we used to get together at Grandpa Jim's. We have kinda lost touch over the years.
