This is in response to your e-mail. You're right, I haven't responded because there is a lot of history there and it is very painful to remember it all since she is no longer here. I first met Phyllis in New York when we were working with Norman Connors on the "You Are My Starship" album. She was beautiful, classy, and we were both very tall.... She was extremely talented...I wrote and sang the title song "You Are My Starship" and I also wrote a duet for Phyllis and I to sing together , "We Both Need Each Other"... That's where it all began/ we toured together, we enjoyed working together and sometimes it was very tiring and stressful but it worked out for both of us... I think we have all suffered a great loss especially her family and close friends. I truly hope that Phyllis has found the peace and happiness that eludes a lot of us in the entertainment field. God bless all of you for remembering her in your thoughts.
