I so enjoyed meeting Phyllis and Lucky. They were always sure to stop and say hello whenever I was doing my delivery of library materials. I always thought how very "lucky" it was that she and her dog shared the days together and made other people smile so often. What a sweetheart Phyllis was and always will be.
