Not sure what to say?

To all the family, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart reaches out to Paige, my love and former student. I was thinking of you a week ago, Paige, before I read about your Mom and Grandma. I'm so sorry for your losses. May God give you peace and comfort.

So long ago, when 10 North was just blossoming, you were one of the founding artists and a friend. I will always remember your beautiful images and goodness in your heart. It's been miles and years, but you will always be one of my artist "sisters" in spirit. Peace.

Phyllis was always so sweet to me.I'll remember her for her kindness and her lovely watercolors.

I will remember Lauri's mom, Phyllis, as such a kind and caring person. I too, like Lori Bose, remember rides to gymnastics with Patty and Lauri. She was such a sweet 4-H mom. I am sorry for your loss.

One of my 4-H mothers...... I will always remember her. I remember her taking Lauri & Patty to our gymnastics class about 40 years ago and waiting for a sow to give birth. It's funny how such small memories pop back into your head after such a long time. My heart goes out to all of the family, Phyllis was a wonderful lady.

There are no words to express how thankful I am that you were my Mom. You had a very special way of guiding us, it was quiet, but strong. I know all that you went through in your life, and it was not easy. But you handled it with grace. You have left so much behind for all of us, so many awesome memories, so many beautiful paintings. We feel the love you had for us in those paintings. Forever, your daughter.

I will miss you Grandma... Glad you are watching over all of us. Love Chris Kelley

So sorry we have lost a wonderful friend. There was not a more positive person than Phyllis. Always cheerful and happy to whatever was needed. We in the are world will miss her. Pam Brasel

We miss you greatly and know your Spirit Soars!
