There are no words good enough to express the love in my heart for Miss Phyllis. She was a beautiful woman.. And it showed through in how beautiful her family is. I loved the way her face would light up everyday when Lil come walking in. She was feisty and so funny. Being around her and a part of her life is a treasure I am lucky enough to carry with me the rest of my days. Her smile could truly light up any room. I will miss sitting on the front porch in the summers with her and hearing the stories of when y'all did your traveling. The world will not be the same without her.
