Kim and Michelle: I am so sorry about you losing your Mother. We go back to gradeschool together and met up at alumni banquets. She was a wonderful person and w/you Father now. Girls, I know she is the prettiest angel there. With Sympathy Linda Hendrix
We were very sorry to hear about the passing of Phyllis. We have lived next door to her for a number of years and appreciated knowing her as our neighbor.
We are so sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. We knew Phyllis in high school and had a lot of fun together. We were from Garnett and spent a lot of time with the Richmond crowd. Your mom was a very nice person and I know she is in Heaven. You will have many wonderful memories to help you through this difficult time. Our deepest sympathy. Love and prayers, Jim & Betty Lutz
