David and Phyllis York founded ToughLove Intl in 1979 in Doylestown, PA. David recently died in Philly. Does the general public of Doylestown and Bucks County even know about ToughLove and David's death?

I got an email informing me of David's death. I am so sorry to hear that as the York's program, Toughlove, helped so many families all over the world. I know that my family is together because of the help that I received. My son is now an engineer (CE) and is extremely successful. God Bless them both. Do you know anything about Phyllis?

Please accept our sincerest sympathy and prayers. We were Reps with the Yorks for many years. Our family is whole because of the program. David will be sorely missed by many. How is Phyllis doing? Is there some way we can send her our condolences? God bless the entire family.

My family extends our deepest sympathy to the York family. David will be greatly missed, but the legacy of ToughLove that he and Phyllis shared with the world will live on.

Thank you for the blessing you were to my family and may you find peace in your hearts during this difficult time.

To Phyllis, to Heidi and to all members of the York family, may I offer my sincerest condolences following Davidís passing. As a TOUGHLOVE Representative here in New Zealand I had the honour of meeting David and Phyllis on two TOUGHLOVE related trips to the USA. The memories I have will stay with me for ever. The TOUGHLOVE program will also remain as a permanent tribute to this parent focussed program that has helped thousands of families around the world deal with unacceptable adolescent behaviour and work hard to keep their families together with love and cooperation. Phyllis, I hope you are managing to endure the days of pain that the loss of such a wonderful husband must have caused.
With fond memories of a very fine man who sparked positive change amongst so many families,
Peter Altmann, Auckland , New Zealand.

Hello Heidi!

I am one of the many parents your parents assisted through the Tough Love program.
I am very sorry about your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I would like to send a card to your mother if you would be so kind as to send me the mailing address. Thank you so much.

I was stunned to hear about the passing of David. Very few men (or women) have influenced as many people as he and Phyllis have. I was a ToughLove Rep in Utah in the early 90's and can honestly say the ToughLove philosophy has had an impact on me and hundreds of other families in our community.

I recognize that David was not perfect (very few of us are!) but he had a depth of wisdom that only comes from experience and gut-wrenching trials that few of us have had to face. Through it all he managed to maintain a calm dignity and a sense of humor, traits which I question whether or not I could have had under similar circumstances.

This world needs more men like David York. I am sure he is now anxiously engaged in working with misdirected souls in another realm, and I look forward to the day when we can meet again.

Sincere condolences on the passing of David. He and Phyllis have left the legacy of Toughlove which has helped and is helping many families in difficult trials. It has certainly helped my family. My prayers and thoughts are with you, PHyllis and your daughters.

Phyllis,

Thank you and David so much for the program. My mother Mary Kaczynski was a member in the early 80's. We went to the Geraldo show that you and David were on. The program truly saved our families mental health. I am sorry to hear about David and our thoughts are with you and yours

Dear Heidi.
It was with great sadness that we only recently heard of the passing of David here in Australia.
On behalf of all past and present members of this wonderful parent support group founded by your parents, I would like to pass on our sincerest condolences to yourself, your sisters and all your families. In particular to Phyllis and I hope that you will please forward to me a contact address and phone number so that I can speak with Phyllis.
I remember you all so well from that 25th celebration in New York when it was so wonderful to see the whole family together.
Please keep in contact so that we can all continue to celebrate the legacy that your parents formed and gifted to so many families.
sincere regards Dot Crisford 0412 164 160
