    Phyllis and I were friends for more than ten years. We had many, laughs, happiness, and golden moments together.We talked about many subjects but her greatest love was to discuss the bible. Weekly we would find enlightenment and joy discussing future and past fulfillment of the bible. To you dear family and friends I extend to you by deepest sympathy because a true solider has laid down her spiritual fight and is resting for a short while. I will dearly miss her and live with the hope of being united with her someday. Isaiah 25: 8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces: and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth; for the LORD hath spoken it. So until we meet again love, joy, and hope will forever keep us as friends.

    To the Wilson Family, I want to express my condolence to you. Phyllis was a special person, very positive person, even though she had many ailments she never wanted to talk about them she only wanted to discuss positive things. One of her favorite positive thing to discuss was talking about her God Jehovah and trying to help others to get to know Him. I really appreciated that about Phyllis and will miss our conversations. May Jehovah the God of Comfort be with you in your time of need.
