I am so sorry for your loss, it can be difficult to lose someone close to you. I wanted to share a hope with you for the future from the Bible. It is at Revelation 21:4, which gives us reassurance that God will one day take away sickness, disease-caused pain and tears of sorrow. We will all one day live in peace forever. If you would like to learn more or have any questions, please go to the official website JW.ORG.

My heartfelt condolences to Phyllis's family. I work for one of the state employee unions, and Phyllis was my contact person while she was providing account services for the Empire Plan Medical Program. Phyllis was exceptional at her job, and working with her was always a pleasure. She truly cared about the Empire Plan enrollees she served, and helped many of them over the years. May she rest in peace.

We are so heartbroken about the loss of our dear Phyllis. She was one of a kind. Caring, vibrant, funny, generous, opinionated, and strong, a talented vegan cook, animal advocate, a wonderful friend, really a another grandparent to us. Blue Heron Drive will never be the same. We love you Phyllis. Too soon gone đź’” -Christine, Amir, Laila, Daffy and Huey
