So sorry to hear of Phyllis' passing. It was an honor to get to know her during the time we spent together visiting Jim in St. Louis and beyond. I will always remember her quirky sense of humor and the way she looked on the positive side of things rather than complaining about her own troubles. She shared this trait with Jim and I always admired it in both of them. I hope that I may be strong and wise enough to share it when I reach the point in my life when they both gave their lessons on perspective to the rest of us.

Peace to you and your family.

Condolences to the entire family of Phyllis. We are about as far away as we could be this week vacationing in Alaska. Our oldest daughter Riley is doing an internship in Anchorage this summer, so we decided to come up and visit her. We will be here until the 26th.

So sorry we will miss the visitation this weekend. Phyllis was a very dear sould, and the FItzgerald clan has all enjoyed getting to know her and the rest of your family these past few years. We are so saddened to hear of her passing, especially so close on the heels of her brother Jim. We will be thinking of your family this weekend, and we look forward to reconnecting again in the future.
