May God bless the family of Aunt Phyllis. I love you all ♡ Losing a Mom is the hardest thing ever. I'm truly sorry, but think she is no longer suffering. She's with our family members who have gone before us. We will see them again one day. ♡

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm going to miss talking with Granny, as she was affectionately known, when I would visit. May God comfort you during this time of mourning.
