Great yet humble.
An honor to have known him.
He will be missed.
Our sympathy to all.
Jeff, Janice, John & Christian Black, Barrington, RI
I never met Mr. Philbrick but I am grateful for the time he spent running the Compass Rose Bookstore. I spent many happy hours there as a kid.
Our world has lost a special soul, whose fruits we've enjoyed, -- civically, politically, culturally, and affectionately -- for almost a century.
Through Jackie and his lively, diverse family, the love he offered was returned, measure upon measure, pressed down, running over.
We will all miss you.
We wish to extend our deepest sympathies at this difficult time.
