Praying for all of the Bobbitt Family. She will be missed by all who knew her. What a sweet, sweet lady. I'll never forget how special she made me feel when I stayed over night while growing up. Love her dearly.

Seeing Phyllis always brightened my day. She was the epitome of class. Yours was a love story to be envied.

I loved her. It's just that simple. My life wouldn't be what it is if she hadn't been in it. What isn't simple is knowing she won't be here with us anymore. My heart aches for all of you but I take comfort in the fact that she is up with my parents reliving all the best parts of Hardegan and the silly stories we kids gave them.
