Phyllis was a rock of help to me for 25 years. Her insight was spot on every time I spoke with her. She fought so hard to beat pancreatic cancer. I remember the day she found out. I was at the Las Vegas airport coming home from a convention. She was determined to beat it. And she beat those 5 year odds. Phyllis, I know you look down from heaven and see us all and I can pleasantly hear you say, “I told you so!” I’ll miss you, dear Phyllis. Reply to this comment

The stories you told of Phyllis made me chuckle. The laughter thru tears comments that Dolly Parton made (Steel Magnolias) are so true. May she, and the whole family, find peace. Reply to this comment

I've know Phyllis for about 32 yrs. We have had a lot of laughs and fun together. She was very good to me in a lot of ways and I learned a lot from her. She was a fighter with her cancer. I loved her, she was like part of my family. I will miss her so much. My heart goes out to her family. God bless you Becky. Reply to this comment
