    Dewayne, we have been through a lot during our lives growing up. I still remember all of those fun days spending the night and your mom always treated me so nice. I am so sorry for your loss. I really cared a lot for your mom. She was like a second mother to me.

    I will forever miss phyllis she was my friend and I was hers. She had the ability to make me cry and laugh ! She always worried about everyone else and hoped she could always be of help to anyone that might need more than herself! I will think of her often as my heart is heavy with the loss of my friend
