    There are no words to describe how much of an impact losing phil is going to have on my life …he was my brother …my friend…in the true sence of what a friend and brother should be…a true family man that loved his family tremedously and would do anything for them., for 40 years he was a constant part of my life…from growing up in Newark….to his moving to st louis he never let a little thing like a thousand miles get in the way of anything….so many of the best memories i have of growing up are filled with his image and will be with me forever. He walked through life at the beat of his own drum…and when faced with death he did not waver ..his resolve was steadfast and courageous. ..a mans man by anyones standards and a true inspiration for us all. Rest in peace my brother…you have touched many lives in your 52 years and we are all better people for having known you.
