    Sending our prayers to your family and friends. When my mom was in hospice he brought Betty whenever she was up to coming. Didn’t seem to bat an eye. We had many conversations with him. He was a caring guy.

    As you prepare to celebrate Phillip’s life try to remember some of his silly knock knock jokes, his adventurousness, his gift of gab, and his love for all of you. We hope these things will bring a smile to your hearts and help to lighten you sorrow. We pray that all of you will find comfort in your memories and the kind memories of others. May God’s love and strength help you in the days ahead. God bless all of you.
