I am so genuinely sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine how you are feeling. I am so blessed to still have both my parents I know I will be devastated when something happens to them. I hope God brings you peace in this your time of sorrow.
My condolences and deepest sympathies to the entire McMahill clan.
Dear McMahill Families,
So sorry for the loss of your mom. She was such a wonderful woman.
All of you are a reflection of your mother as she taught you how to not only love but show respect and empathy for others.
I feel so lucky to have such fond memories of her and fortunate to have known her. In some ways, I grew up with you too, having your mom watching over me at times too and she was extra special because of this. Thank you for sharing her!
I know heaven received a very special Angel today. God bless each of you. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you and your families.
I am a member of Phyllis’s euchre club and am proud to say she was my friend. I met her when I lived in Mechanicsburg and got to know her bettter when I moved to the Village Apts. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
