    Michael, Elizabeth and Family,
    Your mother is remembered in our prayers here at St. Anthony’s where she worshipped our Lord for so many years of her journey. I only arrived at St. Anthony’s this summer and had not yet had the opportunity to meet Phyllis. May your hearts find comfort in the wonderful gift of Christ’s love that promises eternal joy beyond our short journey on earth. You are all in my prayers.
