Our condolences go out to the Dorman family for their loss of the matriarch of the family, Phyllis Dorman. As they say, Phyllis was "blood" to the Pergament family. I first had the privilege of meeting Phyllis 41 years ago, when I was 17 years old. I was dating her daughter Amy in High School. When I close my eyes, I see Phyllis' big smile, and I will always feel her warm heart. What's remarkable is that my sister Lori married Amy's brother, Howard, a few years after I graduated high school. This beautiful union sealed the Pergament Dorman bond forever. Phyllis had a natural gift of making everyone feel welcomed and loved. This blessing and gift was clearly received by her children making them incredibly family oriented and beautiful human beings. Phyllis had an ability to make everyone feel comfortable even in the most challenging situations. I last saw Phyllis a few weeks ago surrounded by her entire family and loved ones. During my visit she was her typical Phyllis self, making sure I felt comfortable more than her. Phyllis is an example of wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother, a woman who led her life in full love, and integrity. May her beautiful soul rest in peace. She will be an inspiration to us all and held close within all of our hearts. Love, Robert & Lois Pergament, Arthur & Tanya Pergament and family, Debbie Pergament and family
