MY Sweet Phyllis. I want to call you so bad. I have much to tell you as always. I have a forever pain within me now that you are gone. We shared great times together. So many memories. I cherish them all and I am so grateful for your life and the honor of being called your “bestie”.

It appears my first email was sent before some grammar errors could be made t the message.. I will attempt to repeat our condolences.
We were shocked at learning of Phyllis's passing and our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends. My wife, Beth Pointer Kellner was a close friend during their school years. Beth has dementia and is not able to travel; however, we will be there in thought and prayer. We had the opportunity to have lunch with Phyllis a couple of years ago. Phyllis was so gracious to
Beth and they got to share some memories. Our love to everyone.
Beth and Ron Kellner
