    I’ll never forget you Phyllis. You had such a big wonderful heart that went right along side your personality. I loved my time working with you and you always made things just a little bit easier.

    So sorry to hear of the death of Phyllis. Gary & I really enjoyed our interactions with her at Dr. Snider’s Office. I don’t know if she ever told any of you about how she once caught my hair in a massage device & I got a “trim” included with my adjustment that day! From that point forward we had a running joke about my “getting a little off the sides”! She was a funny, kind, sweet person. We will miss her.

    Daniel and family,
    I was so sad to hear of Phyllis’ passing. I worked with Phyllis when I taught preschool at Head Start!! She was so sweet, but at the same time could be pretty sassy. She had a huge heart and loved everyone that she met!! She was easy to work with and always had a smile on her face!! She will be missed by everyone who knew her!! I’ll always have a special place in my heart for her!! Sending you all lots of love and prayers.
