    We caught one of her last live on stage shows a few years back when she was at one of the casinos here in Minnesota. We laughed so hard we could barely catch our breath! She was a professional stand up with tons of talent!! Phyllis, thank you for making us laugh for decades, and hope you continue making people laugh in Heaven. We love you and God bless your family. Good night sweet heart!!!
