When I talk about Marie. I smile because she raised her family alone. She was tough and loved all her kids and her dog Sugar. I am privileged to have her as my friend

I'm so sorry for you loss. I have known Ms. Phillips and all the kids all my life. We were neighbors growing up and just always knew Ms. Phillips was there taking care of her kids. She and my mother talked a lot through the years. I know you will miss her. God Bless all of you.
