Our sincere condolences and sympathy to Mary June, Gerald , John and to Phyllis’s Sisters . We have fond memories of Phyllis and will always remember her. Our thoughts are with you at this time.
I enjoyed watching the video. It certainly brought back old memories of my life on the Northfield Road in Kempt. I have seen and spoken with your mom and dad, quite often, when they came to Queens General Hospital, and I happened to be working. They always called me by name and brought me up to date on their children and their grandchildren. May god bless them both. I know Albert was waiting for her, with his arms wide open at the pearly gates. My heart goes out to the family. Think of them with a smile and always remember the fun times and the good times as i am sure their were many to remember….May god bless you all
