  1. Phyllis, I am missing you so very much. I miss your daily texts and phone calls. You were a great friend and I enjoyed working with you for a short time on the town board. You had great ideas for this town. But I know you are having a good time in heaven with your loved ones. You went too soon. Love, Vanessa
