I wish so much to be able to be there to help and support all of you. But the Knobs crew will be represented. I have nothing but fun memories. Like sledding on the terraces with Aunt Jeannie, playing volleyball with Phyllis, cleaning the attic or the basement, whichever Uncle Gene decided needed to be done, playing cards and monopoly or swimming during summer vacation ... sending prayers to help you find your inner strength. Love you all, Mary Kay

Phyllis and I worked together at ACBL. She was a sweet, kind person. We shared many laughs and good times. God bless her and her loved ones. Fly high sweet friend.

Condolences to the family. I worked with and knew Phyllis since 1975. Phyllis always had a smile. We had fun at ACBL and Jeffboat and it was like family back in the old days. Life and work simpler back then and work was fun. We would laugh and socialize and had many events that combined our personal family and work family. Phyllis was always having fun and we would all give each other trouble in a friendly way. RIP Phyllis and thanks for making all those years working together more enjoyable.
