Phyllis was a good neighbor and a walking friend. I especially remember our trip to Charleston SC when we did the Bridge Walk and toured the sites. I can never forget her unique walking style through the neighborhood at a fast pace. Her accident changed her life forever. May she Rest In Peace. With Love, Peggy
