The help she gave us 4-H kids will never be forgotten. The endless quizzing for Horse Bowl, her constant presence at shows. She is very much loved.

Ray, our prayers go out to you and yours. Also to Willis who spoke very loving and often about Phyllis and your daughter's equine accomplishments while we were at work. May God comfort you and the family.
