Jon and I are sorry for your loss.  Your Mother must have been a wonderful person as you are a wonderful friend. We will miss you on Saturday but I will imagine your Mother marching along- side us in San Francisco at the Million Women's March.  
Love -  e & Jon

Beth and Bill,
It is with great sadness that I learned of your mothers passing today. She was a wonderful and devout lady, and I considered her and your father some of my best and most cherished friends. Praying that you both can find peace, Steve Lefebure

Bill & Beth,

   It's hard to realize the Young Family that we knew as kids has past us by and what we have now is some wonderful memories. Music, Grandma Lee's food and just good times! Your mother was such a big part of that great family. My Grandma Jerry respected Phyllis and thought she was smart and a strong lady. Phyllis told us my Grandmother was the reason that Vick and her was married. Your Mom knew I was going to be a girl and I was going to born and the wrong side of the moon. So life would not come as easy. She was right. I have done well, but not been easy. She told me to always look at the stars and watch the moon. I do every night. Now when I look at the stars she will be the one shining  down on me. Thoughts and prayers to you both. Cousin Treva Lee
