I hadn't seen Phillip in many, many years, but there was a time when he was a very good friend to me. I have a lot of fun memories of times spent together. Rest in peace, Phillip.

I wish I would have been told about uncle Phillips "private" funeral. Lots of the family and close family friends wanted to come pay their respects. I love you uncle Phillip. Please watch over me and your great nieces along with your boys and grandbabies. You will always be remembered
