    On behalf of my mother Alma Dashner (Phyllis’s roommate at the Nursing Home) mom sends her deepest sympathy to you all. Mom so enjoyed her company while they shared a room. I got to know Phyllis while visiting my mom, she was such a sweet lady. I’m sure she will be deeply missed by all who loved her.
