Phyllis, My sincere condolences to you, your two children and the grandchildren.I'm so glad I was able to spend an afternoon in your home last year with you, Robert, and other SPH grads. I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to revisit with the two of you, our days together at SPH (1968-1970). You have so many wonderful memories from your 50+ years with Robert that will be with you to make your mourning more bearable. There will be tears and sad times, but there will be many more grins and even chuckles as you recount your years with Robert. I hope we meet again soon and can share some "Robert stories" Best personal regards, Jack Wilson

Phyllis, Please know that Bill and I are keeping you and the family in prayer. May God's peace surround you and your family at this difficult time. I did not get many opportunities to talk with RD, but the times I did were very memorable. It sounds like his impact here affected so many people from so many different walks of life. We may not be with you in the physical, but you are in our hearts. We will see you in North English. We Love you!
Beth
