Dear Brenda, Belinda, Bryan & Family,
We're so sorry about the loss of your Mom. Aunt Phil was a wonderful Aunt, she always made us smile , we could talk to her and she had the best laugh. She will certainly be missed by our family. My prayers are with you all in this difficult time.
Love you,
Scott & Kim
