Guest Book

Jennifer and Bridget, Phyllis was a dear friend to all of her fellow actors throughout the greater Milford area and I'm sure we all have our own special memories of her. Although I've been out of the immediate area for a while now, we still managed to keep in touch from time to time, one of which I'm glad was within the past year. One of my fondest memories, having nothing to do with theatre, was being one of the privileged recipients of her Christmas fudge which she always hand delivered, even "all the way out" in Sutton. May she rest in peace.
