Larry -I was so saddened to read in the paper that your Mom passed away. What an amazing woman she was - and what an amazing life. She was a trailblazer in so many ways, both professionally and personally, and her contributions are a significant legacy in our region. On a personal level, Margery was both a friend and an inspiration. In the late 1980's and 90's, she and I drove the highways (and a few bumpy back roads) of Washington in our work for the state preservation office, and I treasure the time we spent together. Margery was simply indefatigable in those journeys - yet never lost her sharp insights or her elegance even as I began to flag. And in the years since, Margery was always ready with a warm smile, an encouraging word, and an insightful comment to share - exactly the kind of encouragement that made my day... I want you to know how much Margery meant to Seattle, to MOHAI and the heritage community, and to me. She will be sorely missed (and there will never be another Margery!), but her spirit and her vision live on. Please know that you, Gail and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Sarah,
I am so glad we were in town and I was able to read of your mother's truly amazing and wonderful life. It is so nice to see what a loving family and treasured memories you have reflected in all the pictures you shared here. You were so fortunate to have your mother for so many years. And even though you have the memories and the family, there is still something about loosing your mother. My thoughts and sympathy are with you at this time.

I was so lucky to get to know Mimi - and the entire Phillips family - through my friendship with Sarah. She was "SUCH A CLASS ACT" as they say...a true lady like you seldom find today. She accomplished everything she tried in life: from raising her family, to starting a family business...even becoming an accomplished artist (not to forget her bridge skills!). I know what an integral part of the Phillips family she was...she will be greatly missed. Thank you Mimi for giving me the opportunity to know you...I too will miss you.

As I read the MANY accomplishments of Margery ... it is no surprise to me that she was the fashion editor of The Columns and then the Seattle Times. She was the classy, elegant model for all of us wannabees. What fun we had on our Maui trip many years ago -- memories I shall always treasure -- I'm thinking of you all and know you will miss her, but what an incredible, long life she led.
