Not sure what to say?

Daisy, thank you for your warm sentiments! We've found some of those newsletters and can't wait to read them. Please do keep in touch!


We have fond memories of Phyllis attending one of our quarterly socials while she traveled with her bowling friends. She enjoyed writing her column for our newsletter. May you find comfort in knowing that she was our FRIEND. We will keep in touch with YOU and the grandchildren!


Jimmie knew her as Cookie; I knew her Phyllis as a fantastic secretary in '65 before she earned her degree. I will miss her e-mails and phone calls. May you find comfort in knowing that she left her mark.

P.C. was an extraordinary individual. Wonderful memories from Roosevelt (class of '63), Central State and beyond. Thank you, Robyn, for sharing PC's Homegoing. My prayers of comfort are with you and your family.

Sincere condolences to the Cook/Rhymes family. Loving memories of Phyllis will sustain you. We were schoolmates; I'm a member of Velt c/o 1964.

To The Family: May you find comfort in knowing that the LORD JESUS is with us always.
