Wow Phil - there are a few things give me pause to reflect, and the news of your passing is among them.
Thank you for your companionship, your teaching, your humor, your stories, your insight, your humanity, but mostly for your friendship, support and the light you shone into my life. You could be counted on to find the good in any situation, and the lesson in every situation. You will always be missed and never forgotten.
Peace now, Brother Phil. You deserve it!
Until again we meet ...
