Days pass...seasons change...months meld into years and we stand looking at the legacy left behind...(I only know of this man thru the eyes of his son Shawn who is married to my daughter) . It is not to die but to live on in the heart of those left behind who are blessed with the love and guidance he so unselfishly shared while walking the path of humanity.

Deepest sympathy to the family. I will long remember the card games my husband and I played with Phil and Helen. We laughed, reminisced and maybe did a little cheating, but we had so much fun! Also, I remember all the bus trips we went on with them. R.I.P. Phil. Hope you'll continue to enjoy a lot of card games wherever you are!
