I will always remember how Aunt Phyllis always welcomed us into her home with a great big smile and the latest news about the Boston Red Sox. She was always one to entertain us with stories of her, my dad, and their siblings growing up. I will never forget all of the love and support she sent to myself and my brothers growing up. May you rest in peace, Aunt Phyllis. Love, Jenn
