Aunt Phyllis was a real treasure – every single conversation (and rare visit…) was a chance to be with all the Raclawski-clan that has passed over the horizon …. At 94 she was on top of every topic-sharp and clear and insightful… never a dull moment… always interested in the latest news and details of my life “…how’s Debbie??…. tell me all about how Matt and Sarah are doing…”
She was the last connection to my dad, Sister Virgillia his bothers Hank, Leonard, and Chester…
God bless you Aunt Phyllis-you were and will remain part of my life – you will be missed; now get the party started up there.
