Dear Richard and Runnion Family,

Phyllis was a friend from childhood to the present time. She was a dear person and we kept in touch by phone, due to my home in FL.

We always exchanged Christmas Cards, and kept each other informed about each other’s families. It is difficult to go on w/out her, but we know she is in a better place, w/ our precious LORD! We can all comfort our hearts, knowing she is at peace. We pray for the family, who need prayer for strength to go on w/ their lives w/out Phyllis. God richly bless all family and friends, w/ love and hugs, Mary Lou Craig Erwin 10-22-2012
