Phil was a great guy. Enjoyed playing a round of golf with him, even if he did beat us. He had such a great sense of humor.He will be missed and our thoughts are with you and your family.
Tina - to be missed as much as Phil will be is to have lived well - Phil was a gift to all of us. Janet A.
Tina, although I have not experienced the loss of a spouse, I have experienced the loss of loved ones and I know first-handed that earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal. Put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and know that He cares deeply for you and your family. God Bless!
Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.
2 Thessalonians 3:16

The earth is dimmer without Phil's light.
All the good times will never be forgotten.
Tina, my prayers are with you and Phil. Of the few times I spoke with Phil, I felt a kinship with him. I guess IT guys are that way. It sounds like he had many many friends and family in his life who love him. What more could anyone ask for in this life! He was indeed a rich man in that sense.
Phil, you will truly be missed. I am certain that you are sharing joy in heaven as you did on earth.
Tina, so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Tina, You are in my thoughts and prayers for God's continued outpouring of strength and consolation during this time of loss. Bunnie Bryce

Tina, I'm so sorry to hear of Phil's passing. I will always remember the Hot dog hand offs from the house of Weenies in Newark and the Boston road trip. Phil was a great guy, a lot of fun to be around. I'll think of him every Christmas when I hang the "Sea diving Santa dolphin" ornament that he bought me on my tree.
Gurks, you will always be my hero. I wouldn't be anywhere close to where I am today if it weren't for you. You have the kindest heart of anyone I had the pleasure of knowing. You will be deeply missed my friend, and will always remain in our hearts and thoughts.
Tina, I am so sorry. Distance has made us lose touch over the years and for that I am regretful. Please do know that Rosalie, the kids and I will always be here for you not matter what. Love you both!

I'm so sorry for your loss. May the memories of all you shared together bring you peace and comfort.
I will miss your humor,wisdom and guidence. A smile comes to my face as I think of you.
He didn't hide behind walls, he didn't pretend to be anything he wasn't…he was real and present and exposed, and his personality was a tour-du-force free of vanity or false apology. I knew him and am a better man for it. I knew him and loved him, who didn't? I'm sad for all of us.
Many good memories of Piz will alway bring a smile to my face. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Phil and Tina, two of my favorite people in the world! You Boston crew will miss you very much. We will never forget your smile and strength on this battle.

Phil you are an amazing soul with a wonderful take on life. You always saw the silver lining in everything. You walked through this with a grace and dignity that few could match. You will be missed, but I will always remember you when I see the sunlight through the trees, birds busily chatting, or hear laughter. Thank you for being such an example.
