Our dear cousin Phyllis was like a sister to me especially. Our Dad's were brothers and our familys did everything together.. we were born in the same year and our days were always spent together for confirmation, graduation along with summer camps with our church LLL outings and first finding out about bugs in the woods. Barney and Phyllis stood up with us when John an I were married and we have had many fun days Garage saling Antiquing and just spending time together in Minnesota and California. We will surely miss her but know she is at peace with our Lord Jesus in heaven now and we will all meet again someday ....our love & deepest sympathy to all of our families who will miss her-----Rest in Peace Phyllis.....John & Arlette
