My sincere condolences to the family of Phyliss. I was heartbroken to hear of the passing of Phyllis. We grew up together in Warwick Lawns and attended Denbigh High School together. I will never forget all of the fun times we had, all of the laughs until our stomach hurt and sincere friendship. I will always remember her contagious laugh and how excited she got when she heard a song that she loved. I will never forget you. Fly high sweet angel. You will truly be missed.

I am truly sorry to hear about my dear niece’s passing. I am a better person by knowing her and what she stood for. She was one hard working soul doing all she could for her family. I am so happy we got together in Arizona those times and enjoyed our ventures. Not to mention when we came out to Virginia. You were the perfect hostess. Such fun we had with all the family. Rest in peace my dear sweet friend. Our family reunion is taking place at this very moment. Love you forever. “It been a long day.”
