Ellen, I am sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. When you use to watch Shayla for me while I worked, I called you her “Other Mother. That made Ms. Phyllis her “Other Grandmother. She always treated her as a true grandchild , that meant the world to me.
She was a true lady. Our heart is with you through this difficult time. Jane & Shayla Day
