Featured Letter: Remembering a cheerful writer

To the editor:

Phyllis Lombardi was the cheerful writer of thoughtful, observant columns in this paper. 

Her kindness toward people and her appreciation for our local blessings were a reading treat.

Who could have guessed she contended with a long and painful illness but still brought cheer into the lives of others? What a splendid example she set.
