Phil was a good and dear friend. In his life, he practiced what he believed.....in God and in friends.
I just saw the email from Vis. I'm just so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you during this transition.
Dear Family, You have never met me, however, my husband, Bob Keith was a great friend of your Phil. I lost Bob in January of this year. Many of Bob's children (8) live in the MPLS area. Bob & I have been living in Venice/Sarasota Fl. area since we married 18 year ago. Bob always had great thing to say about your father & I am sorry for your loss. Jan Keith, Venice, Florida
Dear Gina, Joe & the Bifulk Family:
I was so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I know I join many others in saying that I am grateful to have had the opportunity to know him. He was a mentor to so many at Merrill over the years, generous in giving his time and insight. I smile when I think of all the Merrill gatherings made fun and entertaining because of your dad's story-telling and incredible wit. Most of all I remember how he always spoke with such love and pride about his family. I hope the love and memories he's left with you will give you comfort and peace.
My sympathies to you all,
Angela, my deepest sympathies. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family today.
Our prayers and sympathy are with you. May your many cherished memories help you through the days ahead.
What a great man Mr. Bifulk was! I am grateful that he was such a great friend of my parents so that I was able to get to know and love him.
My prayers and sympathy to all of the family.
I never saw Mr. Bifulk without a smile on his face! My sympathy to the entire Bifulk family.
Uncle Phil was my Godfather and such a special man to me. I just saw him at my father's funeral a few weeks ago. God took two of the best men on the planet home the same month. I am sure they are giving us the wave in heaven. I will miss my dad and Uncle Phil immensely. But I know they are in heaven with Jesus and having the time of their lives. Meri Crouley
Wished we would have had more time, but the time we had was special....your words of wisdom I will always remember. You will remain in my heart forever...You will be missed by many, love you always Uncle Phil, Sam
My prayers to the family. May God be with you all during your time of sorrow. (Mary Roland's daughter)..
My Dad, Robert Keith, admired Phil very much. As a kid, I remember attending swim pool parties at the Al Kennedy home where Phil and Betty joined in the fun. My Dad died this January. I know the pain of your loss. I am so sorry. I send my heartfelt sympathy.
I am so sorry for you and your family. He was a great man.

Dear Lord, I wished that I had known my Uncle Phil. He sounded like such a great man. My Mother,Mary, his sister, was also a great woman. I send a prayer also for Her. As this candle is lit I pray that God will put them together as with the others that has passed on. I know that they are in Heaven with you Lord. Uncle Phil as you make that step tell my Mother that I love her too. With This Candle That Is Being Lit I Pray Not Only for Uncle Phil But For My Mother Also. In Jesus Name....AMEN
Sorry to read about your Dad. What a grand reunion with your Mom. blessings, ellen

Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I so enjoyed every visit I had with your Dad. I loved seeing him at Keith and Phil's athletic events. Enjoyed having a cocktail with him while tailgating at Midway Stadium. He was great guy!
Bonnie-Jeannette and I were saddened to hear of your heart breaking loss of Phil. Our hearts an prayers are with you in your hour of grief. Phil leaves a hole in the hearts of all that knew him. What a great guy....The Strubs
Leslie, Gina & families, I would like to extend my condolences to your whole family. I just saw your Dad 2 weeks ago at Assumption and had the chance to visit. He always had a smile for me & ask how my mother was. You were lucky to have him for these many years. I will remember him often.
From The Prinske Family: I met Phil through my husband Tom & through Tom's Uncle John Castro, and we are so sorry to hear of his passing. When we named our third boy Phillip, Phil kidded us that we named him after himself. Then and even now, I can't think of a more wonderful person to name your child after. Phil was a funny, and generous person. He will surely be missed by anyone who has had the opportunity to know him.
I miss you so much and remember I was always taller.
Golly, what an amazing and Godly man. He will be greatly missed by many.
Wonderful memories of the Phil,Betty and Bonnie families over 50 years -the years that have passed so quickly. Wasn't Phil the best dinner partner ever ?? Our sincere prayers on Phil's passing.
"Blessed are those who mourn,For they shall be comforted." I am so sorry for your loss. I know what it means to lose a love one. May the memories of Uncle Phil help you through the hard times. Love you all, Mary Ann(Mary's Daughter)
Dear Gina, Eva and Leslie, Thank you for sharing Phil with us---his love and light will be carried on through all of you. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Much love to your family.
To My Family,
I wish I could be there with you today. Uncle Phil was a great man, who loved us all, and who had wise words during difficult times. I know Grandpa Frank and Grandma Clare were waiting for him and helped to greet him when he arrived. I love you all.

To the Bifulk family. I'm sorry to here about your dad passing. My brothers Tom, Larry, Jim Goin, and my son Adam are hunting up in Orr, Mn. We had some good times as neighbors in the past. Hi to Joe especially. Our prayers are with you. Phil was a great guy.
Thinking of Phil's family during this time. I learned so much from Phil during my time at Merrill. His unending support and interest in the business was inspiring. I also treasured his suggestions on what to see in Italy, all discussed over a very good meal and lots of wine. A lovable character! I will remember Phil always.
To all the Bifulks: I thought Phil was so generous at heart. He was very proud of his Italian heritage as was my dad and he spread good cheer wherever he went. I'm so sorry for your loss.
We will miss our Uncle Phil and I have many treasured memories of him. Blessings to all of the Bifulk family. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
Karen Abbott and family
To the Bifulks - Phil was a very special man in my life, and for my extended family. As you know, Phil worked closely with my dad for many years at CDC. Dad spoke often of his trememndous respect and admiration for Phil's many qualities and capabiliities. Along the way, I had the best ride with Phil on business projects too numerous to detail. We had so much fun. And he was so proud of all of you. Our family extends deepest sympathies to all.
Sending love and light to the Bifulk family.
What a loss? All of my memories of Phil and his family are good ones. Tom Votel

Forever in my memory, Phil will be, effervescent, zesty, wise and hilarious. When I learned of his passing vivid memories of our youth ran technicolor through my mind's eye. I can't imagine what you are going through, so I offer you the healing energy of golden light for peace and grace. Take all the time you need. Know I think of you often with deep love and joy.
Phil was my friend. He was exuberant about being Italian; and a devote Catholic. Being with him was always a pleasure; sometimes a thrill.
To Phil's family and friend, I am so sorry for your loss. I know that Phil was a great man and touched countless lives... Phil lives on in our special memories forever!
Thinking of you Angela during this sad time.
