Karen and I send our heartfelt condolences to your wonderful family. We are not able to attend the memorial service due to my own health concerns. We will remember Phyllis with such fond memories as we served together at Conestoga Family Pracice in Akron. Phyllis treated her work far greater than a job but as a calling. Karen especially recalls the surprise baby shower Phyllis organized for her. What a Godly heritage Phyllis and Fred established for their family that will certainly live on for years to come.Our prayers are with you all.
