Lee was a good friend and a kind, compassionate, and intelligent woman. The many years Bob (Guiduli) was sick she never missed a month when she would come by and visit with him and brighten his day. She will be missed and remembered fondly.

Thank you Lee and Al for befriending us in Burlington, 1966!!! and thereafter. There's a lot to be said for not suffering (too much) and not being able to remember ghastly current events.

Dr. Phillips was a role model for me when in med school at UVM in the 1970s. I remember her clearly with deep admiration and fondness.

Sending much sympathy,

Dear Lynn and family,

How lucky we were to be one of your mom's neighbors! The memory of her I treasure the most will always be her beautiful voice. Sincere condolences to you all.

My Mother helped Dr. Phillips care for her husband for a time, and became dear friends with her. My family and I will always be grateful for how wonderful a person Dr. Phillips is, and the comfort and friendship she provided our Mom was immeasurable. I'm sure there are scores of other families that would say the same. A great woman, a great person will be missed. Thank you for sharing your life with so many.
