I'll be OK, Ma

A Mother Receiving Signs from her Deceased Son

Phyllis Schwartz



Silver Award Winner 2023 Midwest Book Awards.


Publication date:  07/06/2022


Phyllis Schwartz wrote this book after having published her memoir in 2021 because she wanted to tell the rest of the story about her son.  Danny died in 1985 at the age of twenty-two, he was killed in an accident on his college campus just two days before he graduated.  In the book  I'll be OK, Ma: A Mother Receiving Signs from her Deceased Son, Phyllis talks about the signs she receives from her son Danny, especially on his birthday. The signs range from hundreds of birds in his favorite tree to a yellow balloon floating in the breeze, to the random acts of kindness from strangers.

She reminds the readers that we will all have our own opinions and belief systems and that's okay.


            Phyllis is a native of rural southern Minnesota. She attended St. Cloud State College. Following that, she attended the Minneapolis School of Massage and Sister Rosalind School of Massage. Phyllis opened up her own massage business in Burnsville Minnesota and later developed a massage franchise that was the first in the entire nation.

 The business was named “Keep in Touch” as a living memorial to her son, Dan. He was killed in an accident three days before he was to graduate from college. He had always supported his mom’s dream to open her own massage business. She continued to operate the business along with her family for the next 32 years.

            Phyllis lives in Burnsville, Minnesota, with her husband of 62 years. They have two surviving children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. She is now retired and enjoys spending time with family and friends, and especially playtime with her great-grandchildren.
