So thankful for Aunt Phyllis! What an inspirational kind and joyful person! So generous in her words and actions! Full of life, full of sharing joy with others, such a sparkle in her eye, such humor and delight and fun and thoughtfulness and gracious words and sharp witt! Also thankful that I got to spend sometime with her just last year. That gives me an added sense of peace. I want to be more like her! Thankful for the love that she showed me! We used to joke when we were younger that if she went to jail people would commit crimes just to visit her. Hannah has a dress now that she bought for me on one of her visits. She will be missed and I look forward to seeing her again in heaven. Lisa Kohl
