I was saddened by the news today to hear of Phyllis's passing. She always had a smile and a big hug for me and her encouragement was always like a breath of fresh air. I love Phyllis very much, and she and worked together in the Stephen Ministry at Southeastern Church of Christ. I learned so much from her, and will miss her very much. Blessings and peace to Don and the family. Love in Christ, Patty Scott

So sad you will be missed greatly. I first met Phyllis at Lane Bryant where we worked together and was happy to see her come to Southeastern later where she always gave me a hug. She was a great friend to me and so many others. So sorry for her family prayers
