When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not here to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time you think of me I know you'll miss me too. But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.
Love, Mom

Phoebe was my mentor when I worked at Nazareth House; she taught me how to be a CNA. She "ran a tight ship", but we had fun. I've never met anyone as caring as Phoebe; we were all lucky to know her, she was a good friend!

Phoebe was an awesome woman who I had the blessing to know. Every week she made me laugh. A strong, woman and great role model. My weeks will be less bright without her. My prayers and condolences to the family. Becky Heisig

I worked with Phoebe at Nazareth House for many years. She was always hard working and showed so much love for those she took care of. Even after she "retired" from Nazareth, she would still pop in to see some of the residents and staff that worked with her all those years. She was a true professional and wonderful example of a human being. I always knew when she was around as she had a signature perfume! My thoughts and prayers to her family.

CandlePhoebe was a beautiful, caring person. It was truly a pleasure knowing her, being her friend. I will always cherish my many memories of her and "Baker" out at my parents' farm. They shared many cups of coffee, pieces of homemade pie and stories with my parents, also many other friends who gathered there. Phoebe will always be remembered and missed. My heart goes out to all of her family and many friends.
