  1. A marvelous friend, compassionate and wise. Down to Earth… thanks you so very much for touching my life Phillis. Miss you and yet, cannot imagine I’ll stop talking to you. Once upon a time You told me you saw me in a big tub of hot water. When at the Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California and found myself in their hot tub, I thought of You. And when you sent me sassafras tea telling me to invite a fellow Hoosier for a tea ceremony.. I found a lovely bass player from Bloomington who was also there for massage school. And when I was sleeping on the floor of a vacant house and asked you: “was I ever going to make money?” Phillis replied: “You don’t want to make money-you just want to be useful” And she was right. People gifts me clothes, meals, room… don’t need $, can share lots to be of service and useful. Thanks Phillis.

  2. Chris & Laura,

    My husband (Ken) & I met your mom & dad years ago at the Dry Dock restaurant on the east side of Indy. They knew our musical buddies Tom & Dan Mobley, and Henry Adams (music groupie & friend) may have introduced us to your mom & dad. Fast-forward many years, and we became re-acquainted through Henry Adams & Deb Duzinski. After Henry’s death, Deb used to pick up Phylliss and bring her to hear us play music. They often came to Teddy’s Burger Joint and Vino Villa. The last time we saw your mom was last September, when we picked her up to go to Deb’s funeral. I had several phone conversations with her, and she often mentioned you two kids and her beautiful grandaughters. I talked to her by phone either the end of June or beginning of July. I’d planned to visit her, but didn’t get to the Altenheim in July. When I called her phone, then the Altenheim today, to arrange to visit, they told me the sad news. I’m SO sorry that I didn’t get to say goodbye! I know her faith in God was very important to her, as mine is to me. And she loved her kids so much! I plan to see this kind, humble lady again in Heaven, but so regret not taking the time to see her in late June when I called her. My advice to the family is to put God first in life and to cherish family next. The rest, like job obligations,home chores, etc.are so much less important than loving the Father and one’s family & friends! May precious memories of your mom and her fine example bring you comfort in your sorrow.

  3. Chris and Laura,
    I’m so glad Henry Adams and I attended that Edgar Cayce event at the Harrison House many, many, many moons ago.
    Your dad and I were in the same group discussion and then I met your mom.
    Phylliss and I just connected within the last 2 weeks. She’s my turtle woman and I’m her Llama woman, for sure.
    We’ve shared a lot of New Years, shopping, comedy, watching Kara Company and dinners.
    My favorite New Year party was when she stood up, recited a poem, then sat back down…totally unexpected. She was awesome.
    I miss shopping for cookies with your dad too.
