    Our deepest sympathies go out to Jim and the family at this time of bereavement.  Phil was not only a gracious lady she shared her knowledge, talents, and time in the Prayer Shawl Ministry at the former St James the greater in Sauk Village.  She was always one to help out at Fish Fry and other functions held at the Parish.  May her memory be a blessing to all of us.  Death may steal our loved one from us but it can NEVER steal our Memories of Phil.

    God Bless

    Mike and family.  We were deeply saddened to hear about your loss.  I will never forget her reaction at your retirement/proposal.  Your Mom had a big heart and such a beautiful spirit.  She will definitely be missed.  We wish you all much comfort during this time.  God Bless!
