Dearest Mother,

From the time you are 19 years old, still a teenager, you were determined, whatever it meant and, whatever it would take to bring your children into the world almost, costing you your life with me.

It was never an easier path for you. As your children, we brought you a multitude of challenges /opportunities which, you faced head-on with love and acceptance. You were always there never shutting the door. You were a very devoted wife, A loving adoring child of Ann and Jack Olan. You understood family and, did your best very best to give us that understanding and, appreciation. You were a faithful friend to many. Your love you have a few boundaries.

With deepest love, gratitude and faith in God and, God‘s love for you, I know you are in good hands for the rest of your journey
Love your daughter,

No words can truly describe my complete feelings and memories of my Aunt Phyllis. She was always in my life and had open arms and love for me and later for my family. She was a caring person and loved by all. My husband Henry and two children Sean and Adriana all felt the same way. I will never forget all the holidays, celebrations, vacations and the time I lived with them. My condolences to my Uncle Leon, Sora, Kevin, Bradley and Kara and all the grandchildren.
