  • I was blessed to have such a wonderful mother-n-law. Nina, my Mum and Auntie were “besties”. I know Nina and Doris are having cocktails together catching up. Watch out Heaven. She was quite the fancy, glitzy, caring, loving, Stubborn, amazing lady. We wouldn’t have it any other way. The memories are never ending. We had many laughs and adventures to say the least. Her and Jordan were inseparable. She taught Jordan her exceptional shopping habits (from birth to 18). Don’t worry Nina, Papa will be well taken care of. So honored to have you for as long as we did, you are one of a kind. Much Love!

  • Dear Baylis family I’m so sorry for your loss. I worked with Phyllis at the Allerton house, she was a great lady and a pleasure to work prayers are with you at this time 😞

  • I am so sorry for the loss of this beautiful woman, wife and mother. Although I didn’t know Phyllis personally, she sounds like a very devoted person to her family, friends and work. Devotion is a rare trait these days and when you meet someone like that, you treasure them and the memories you share long after they are gone. May the memories you shared bring you joy and happiness to help you endure this difficult time. My sincere condolences to your family.
