    We are sorry to hear of the loss of your mom, a brilliant, devoted, never-give-up, far-sighted, spiritual woman we were so happy to call a friend. We have deep admiration for your parents. They were role models for us and surely for many others. Now your folks are together rejoicing in their reward in heaven. May our Lord continue to give you strength to carry on. Ed and Donna DuBaldo

    Carol and all,
    I was saddened to learn of the passing of Phyllis. Although my business relationship with her in the early 80's was brief, I always respected her compassion and knowledge. She will be missed. My thoughts are with you and your family.
