    I just opened my e-mails and my niece Catherine sent me Phyllis’s obituary. I am remembering all the family get-togethers and the laughter shared. Tho I cannot attend today, at tomorrow’s Mass, she will be remembered. I am so sad for her family, whom she loved so much.

    John, I send you my condolences, also. You got to share all those years and happy times with Phyllis.

    My love to all,
