    Sorry for your loss. I grew up with the Davis and Dungy children. Phyllis was a good friend and parent for those of us from the 60’s.

    My condolences to the Davis and Dungy families on the passing of Phyllis. Knew most of the family from school and church activities. Also remember shopping at the market.
