Phil was always so kind and sweet to us. We loved him and all his family. We was a friend that you could ask a favor and know it would get done. I know you all will miss him but know he is happy with family he has not seen in a all time, Take comfort in that and the fact that he loved you all so much. Please know that if you need anything call. Nell or Grace
