Bob and Family, my heart goes out to you in the loss of your wonderful Phyllis. I know you will all miss her terribly. I think I first met Phyllis when we were in 5th grade at Franklin School. She was always so friendly and sweet, with that beautiful dimpled smile of hers. May God grant you all peace and comfort at this difficult time. Joanne Hovmark Claypool, HHS, 1953.
