I will always remember our high school years with joy! Nobody could sing, tell a joke, or make me feel happy like Phillip.
Dear Nopadon and Phillip's family, I was so sad to hear this news today. Phil was a dear friend to me in college, and I have been so sorry we had fallen out of touch after a couple moves on my end. He and I worked at the Chaplain's office together at Yale, and he always had the biggest smile on his face. And we suffered through German together... Nopadon, I remember his excitement and glee when he met you, and a lovely note you sent us once. Please know you are all in our thoughts and have our deepest condolences. We will all miss Phillip. -Marci McCoy and Amir Roth, Kensington, MD
Phil was a true individual who wasn't afraid to follow his dreams, wherever they took him. Nopadon, my thoughts are with you.
From the moment we met in high school, I knew that Phillip was one of the most mentally and spiritually courageous people I have ever met. He was genuine and proud to be himself. I am proud to have known him, and am a better man because of Phillip. Thank you, friend, and Godspeed.
Our hearts go out to you at this time and in the days ahead.
