We are so sorry to hear of "neighbor Phil's" passing. We have really missed him since we moved nearly two years ago, but we did keep in touch and visit. Phil used to come over and sit on the front porch and shoot the breeze nearly every night in the summer time. He was the kind of neighbor everyone should hope to have. He missed Elaine so much, so it is somewhat comforting knowing that they are together again. Our deepest condolences to Paul and the rest of the family.

It's so hard to believe. Phil was a long time friend to the Late Great Chevy car club members. He was a true craftsman We still talked every 3-4 weeks on Sunday afternoons by phone. When we hear the phrase "Life doesn't seem fair." we think of Phil and his losses through life. Thank you, Phil, for your service in Vietnam as well. We will deeply miss your joviality, but are happy you are with Elaine now. God Bless your Soul!
