One of the toughest most gracious women I have ever known, warm and accepting, giving and sharing, you have been an example to us and will be sorely missed.
Linda Eshe, March 4, 2019 Phyllis was a peach in every sense. Always welcoming and deeply connected to her family. My condolences to friends and family. Thinking of you today. John Buzzard, March 3, 2019 Hugs and prayers my dear friend and Rocky. Mama B. was so fortunate to have been able to be there with you these last few years. And what a godsend Rocky is. Your mama may have started out in that little round house in Kansas but she sure did move up in the world, being dressed to the nines, and ending her final days in a big bustling city with myriads of good Christian friends. I so wish I could be there with you.
