My husband, Kerry is in the class of "58 with Phyllis. She has always treated me like a friend. I appreciate that. She was a lovely lady and will be sorely missed. I am sorry for your loss.

Phyllis handled many things with grace and dignity and was a delight to be around. I remember our Carribbean cruise in December several years ago with several of us 1958 A L Brown Hi School classmates had a wonderful time. Always nice when she was able to make it to Statesville for the performing Arts Live performances. Sorry to have her leave us but so glad that she no longer is suffering. Please accept our condolences. Always, Kaye & Don Daniel
