To the family .. Our deepest sympathy at this very difficult time. It is always sad to lose a family member but being so close as Phyllis was to my family makes it more difficult. I remember her from the time I was a child, grew up with Larry and Junior, remember her and Carleton Sr. visiting my choldhood home. She has left fond memories I am sure with all who knew her. I was proud to have her as a 1st cousin.. Rest in peace.
