    I worked with Phyllis in Calgary. I was one of her staff. What I saw was a very talented person with a creative mind. Persona flowed through her with trust. Phyllis shared her life experiences and hardships with me. We became friends and spoke often even after my departure. Phyllis didn’t allow lupus to take over her dream. Instead she treated her Illness as a part of who she was. Phyllis’s motor skills may have been affected but her imagination and thought process continually created verbal pieces of magnificent art, just like the pieces that hung upon her walls.

    Phyllis, your a beautiful person and always will be to me. May you peacefully decorate the heavens with the gift you were given with at birth. May you shine bright and know love is unconditional now. Nothing can be taken from you.

    All my love,
    Your friend in heart,
