Tom, Tammy and all the Harris Family. My heart goes out to you in the loss of Phyllis. As, Pastor Dennis said at church this Sunday, she didn’t die, she was “promoted to Glory!”. Prayers and comfort to all the family.

Doug and Chris, I am so sorry to hear about Phyllis’s passing. She and your dad were wonderful people, and I have such good memories of them and especially our time with the boosters at JM. Please know you are in my prayers.

I grew up next door to this beautiful lady and her wonderful family. Mrs. Harris was the nicest mother in our neighborhood she always made you feel welcome and at home in her house. I loved her family!

I am respectfully sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. The scripture in the Bible at Psalms 90:10 says, “The span of our life is 70 years, Or 80 if one is especially strong. But they are filled with trouble and sorrow; They quickly pass by, and away we fly. Blank was blessed with blank years of strength and life.” May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories as you celebrate a life well-lived. I encourage the reading of the following scriptures: Daniel 12:2; John 5:21,28,29; Revelation 21:3,4.
