Dear Family,
I'm so very sorry for your loss. Jerry was my counselor all through junior and senior high schools, and I met Phyllis many times, plus she attended all our reunions along with her beloved husband. Phyllis was always sweet and friendly to all of "Jerry's kids". They are together again and I pray they both will forever Rest In Peace. I know that you have countless happy memories to sustain you through these difficult times and to bring you smiles in the future. My heartfelt sympathy and thoughts are with you all.

Dear Family,

Phyllis, such a wonderful, delightful, and talented human being. Her knowledge and teaching style was also excellent. In her day, she knew the name and care of every plant and flower. I've been missing her for a while.

We wound up sitting together at the last few Garden Club luncheons. Such a good heart.

Such a well matched and wonderful couple.
