Phyllis Homicz was a good friend and next door neighbor of my mother, Mary Fappiano, for many years. My mother passed in January of 2010. I pray that Phyllis and my mother are reunited and are continuing their loving friendship in Heaven. Phyllis was a strong, tough, determined lady who made a big difference to a lot of people, especially those who went with her and her sister Carmel on the many bus trips they arranged over the years. I pray that Phyllis's family be held gently in the loving arms of the Lord and I pray that they be blessed with His peace, the peace which passes all understanding. Pat Fappiano
