David and Dennis,

My condolences on the loss of Phyllis. She was such a great woman. When I first went to work for Bob Oliver, he told me that she was one of his most respected friends. He always called her "Judge". She was so very kind to me whether in the office, or at the funeral home. She will be sorely missed.

I am so sorry Phyllis has passed away. She was a wonderful friend to my mother Mary Janetta Pflasterer who passed March 2019. I know they spent many good times together. I actually saw Phyllis this past summer at Walker’s. I introduced myself, and we had a wonderful visit. She was such a joy and touched many lives. My Mom will be delighted to welcome a new angel.
