  2. Love and prayers to all the family! Phillip had a heart of gold and a gentle sweetness in his soul. I am sorry for the families loss, but take comfort that he is in the arms of our sweet and glorious savior Jesus Christ!!

  3. Phil loved his children and was always trying to protect them from harm when they were growing up. He would walk up Main street in our small town of Lapel, looking for his youngest daughter Amber. She was usually with my granddaughter Maghen and would try not to be found. He had many life difficulties and even though he was not able to overcome many, he learned to live with them the best he could. His daughter Amber works in the health field today and felt blissed to be there with her father, taking care of him as he had tried to take care of her.
