Ann, Jan, Tammy and Family; I am so saddened to hear of Phillips passing. Just a couple of months ago Phillip stopped by my house and we talked of old times. You all know that Phillip was one of my best friends. The times we use to have playing baseball I’ll always remember. May he Rest In Peace and I pray that God will give you all that peace that goes beyond understanding. Love you all.
