Randy, I heard from my mom that your mom had passed away. I wanted to leave you a note to let you know I'll never forget the times I would visit you at the house out on M55 and we would be shooting hoops in the driveway and your mom would call us in for a bite to eat. She was always so kind to me. God bless and my prayers are with you and your family

Saddened to hear of the loss and friendship of Phyllis. We lived very close together, and often walked to school together from the beginning until the 11th grade. Everytime I went to Tawas, I'd stop and see Phyllis and Erv at their M55 home, over the years. Both during high school reunions, and while on a private trip to Tawas. It's hard to imagine her loss after so many years of friendship. As a woman of faith, she is now in the most perfect place to be for an eternity. My condolences to "Tooie" her sister (Jackie) and to Erwin, her husband.
