To Amie and Tom and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all 🙏🏻 Your mom, mother in law & grandma was such a nice and kind person to all of us playing baseball, even if we were on the opposing team most of the time! What a gem of a person. You will be missed..

To the Nelms family…so sorry for your loss. Phyllis and Tom were some of the most faithful ‘Lady Tiger’ basketball fans even after their grandchildren Whitney and Kelsey played. Always there to support ‘Tiger’ athletics. Always had time to chat before games and how she was loving being a grandparent. Her memory will always stay in your hearts and remember the eternal home for believers will reunite loved ones. Phyllis was a wonderful person and many learned life lessons when she was a school teacher. sue junkins

My deepest condolences go out to Amie and Tom. Your mother was my favorite teacher that I had attending Powhatan Grade School. Although I was young man at the time. She had an impact on my life regarding respect and discipline. She is and will always be a special lady.
