We will miss you dearly Auntie Phyllis. Thanks for always loving us and being interested in our lives. I will always treasure the handwritten letters you sent at Christmas time and your visits to the farm.
It's comforting to know that all the "Fox Girls" are
celebrating in heaven together and resting in the Father's arms. Love you always.

I remember hanging out at the Conover house with Diana. Phyllis was always busy. I loved playing Yahtzee there as a child. She was like another mother to me then. I remember her as a very industrious, competent woman. My condolences to her family.

My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. Losing someone you love is truly difficult and I know Phyllis will be missed. Please know our Heavenly Father holds out promises that can help us with our sorrow. One such promise is that death soon will be done away with forever (Revelation 21:4) and another promise is that "there is going to be a resurrection." (Acts 24:15) I pray these promises from God, who cannot lie, (Titus 1:2) bring you comfort.
