    So very sad to hear this… Jigger and Delores were the faithful and kind neighbors of my Mother, Helen Coffman for years and were such a blessing to our family… May The Lord comfort them in their sorrow is our prayer ?

    Please accept my deepest condolences. I had been looking for Phylesia to keep contact with her, and finally found her.…that was her obituary after one year from her passing away. I would love to be in touch with you.
