    I have many memories of being at the farm and enjoyed being around that large kitchen table with all. I remember much laughter and cleaning stalls and riding Misty–right into the pond even. Phyllis was so inviting and very nice and she always wanted to feed me! I extend my sincere condolences to each of you. May she rest in peace, and there be much comfort found in all the loving memories. Love to each of you. Love you Janet, thinking of you.

    Sorry for your loss. I remember (while staying at my grandparents Paul and Emma Collins house -along time ago!) Phyllis would stop by and take me to the farm, so one of the girls could take me on a horseback ride. Can’t remember which daughter….but phyllis knew my grandmother did not like us riding the horses…so Phyllis would tell her we are just going to look at the cows! Worked every time. Good memories. Please know we are thinking of your entire family during this difficult time.
