All my love to you, Linda and Heather. Phyllis was a wonderful woman and a second Mom to me for many years. Your family has a special place in my heart.

Linda, I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mom. I have great memories of growing up next to you all, one of which was racing over to your house at 4pm to watch Dark Shadows with Phyllis. I was only 9 or 10 but we were both so into that show. She was always so kind to all of us in the neighborhood. Even though I hadn't seen her in a long time, i read her Facebook posts - she will be missed.
