    Phyllis, So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My mother is a 10 year survivor of both breast and colon cancer. I am so lucky to still have her with me. Debbie is very good to keep us “old timers” in touch with each other. Take care and we will see you down the road somewhere. Gail

    Phyllis, So sorry for your loss. As you said you miss her so much already, I still miss my mom too, I don’t think that ever stops. Thinking of you and your family. Willie and Kathy

    Dear Phyllis,
    I have just read Debbie’s account of your mother’s death. Both Gordon and I want to give you our sincerest sympathy. It is so hard to lose a mother. My mother died 7 years ago at age 92. I think about her daily as do Courtney and Adam. Now it is mostly with very fond memories and smiles and lots of fun stories. That time will come for you as well.
    Your mother was a wonderful horse show mom to her lovely daughter, Phyllis. I shall never forget you on your beautiful parade pony. Of course, I remember seeing her when Megan was showing.
    Please know that I am thinking of you.
    Susan Chavers
