Grandpa Philip, you were my spiritual grandfather for a short time, but you added so much joy to my life. Thank you for believing in me. I will forever remember you and your kindness. I listen to your music every day while driving, and I think of you and the love of Yeshua. I look forward to our picnics in eternity. Love you!

You music means so much to me, and it helped guide me through my salvation process. I know I'm not the only who feels this way. I hope one day to take your hand and thank you personally when we all join Yeshua together.

Goodbye Mr. Klein. You still live with us through your beautiful music. He asked you to "Come Dwell With ME" and so you did. We rejoice knowing where you are.

Our family remembers when he came to Orhaolam in Overland Park, KS in early 2000's. Our young son loved his music and so did I. We still have those early recordings.
May his memory be a blessing. Many condolences to family. Shalom to you.

Philip was one of the greatest encouragers I ever knew. Heaven's Choir is much richer, for I know he is singing his heart out and praising his Lord. I loved you and I will miss you, dear friend.
