    Our sincere condolences and love to the family. Heaven is rejoicing that another child has come home.
    Phyllis was a good friend and classmate of mine. She was always kind to others. We lost touch many years ago when Charlie and I moved to central North Carolina. Years passed and then we had a chance meeting with her and Joe at McDonalds in Taylorsville. We all talked for a couple of hours. That is the last time we saw her. Since then we have moved to Arkansas. But We will always cherish her and Joe’s friendship. We will see them both again on that glad REUNION DAY❣️ Much love,
    Linda Kerley Lyttle & husband Charlie Lyttle
