Lois and family,
You are all in our thoughts and prayers!
Phil was so very kind and a real gentleman too...I can't count the times he helped us girls with something here at work and always did so with kindness and good humor! I fondly remember one particular time he even came running up first thing in the morning when I had trapped a wayward squirrel in my garbage can and paged him in a panic! He had a good laugh and then took the poor thing outside and let him loose!
We thank God that we had the chance to know Phil and we will miss him!
Michelle and Randy Williams
