Dear Phillips Family,
I spoke to your mother last summer, I knew her but she didn't know me. I asked her I went to school at St. Rose with two of her children, Juanita and Christina, and she couldn't hardly believe I remembered you two since it been 50 years ago, But we talked about 15 min, she said it was very nice of me to remember her but also her children. Juanita, you were one year ahead of me, I still go to St. Rose every Sunday from St. Louis, but please know, I will remember your dear mothers soul in my prayers. God bless you all.
Paul
