    Love and hugs to all you. Wish we were there with you. I hope there is a Dillards in heaven! Phyllis did LOVE to shop. I remember many trips Bill and Phyllis took to Iowa. For Phyllis, most of those included a trip to Amana to the woolen mills. Phyllis and I always had so much to talk about. It is never easy to lose those we love. It is difficult to watch our families get smaller and smaller. I hope good memories will give you strength. Love Always!
