Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry I didn't have an opportunity to meet you. I followed in your footsteps and went into the Army. My mom (Elizabeth Joan "Betty Jo" Phillips), told me about you. Life is but a blink of an eye and we are gone. Thank you for writing to me. My light eternal shine upon you; rest in peace, Uncle James.

I am sorry to hear of Col. Phillip's passing. I appreciate his service to our Country as well as the town of Fordyce and Dallas County. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Dear Agnes,
Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. Jim was such an impressive man to be around and I have only known him for a few years. Can only imagine the things he accomplished in his early years, such a legacy for his children and grandchildren. Much love to you all.

Dear Agnes,
Rosalie and and I were saddened to learn of your loss and pray God's comfort as you go through this period. Jim was a great help to me as I transitioned into the AWC and we appreciated your advice as we opened our B&B in Conway. Jim had a full and rewarding life but we know it will not be the same without him as your partner.
With love,
Paul and Rosalie Revis

Such a wonderful, friendly, loving man. Prayers for Mrs. Agnes and the Wynne family.

I was staying at the Wynne-Phillips House the day the United States kicked off Operation Desert Storm in 1991. My brother's reserve unit was deployed to the Middle East at that time. I was in the National Guard but my unit wasn't deployed. After Colonel Phillips talked me though what he thought the U.S strategy would be and what assets the U.S. had available, he eased a lot of my fears about my brother's safety. Thank you sir.

MRS. AGNES AND FAMILY, PLEASE ACCEPT OUR HEARTFELT SYMPATHY AND LOVE IN THE LOSS OF MR. JIM..HE WAS SO GOOD TO WORK FOR...HE ALWAYS KNEW JUST WHAT HE WANTED DONE...OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH ALL OF YOUR FAMILY.

The Colonel gets my salute for numerous reasons. We enjoyed many days of golf,long hours of visits
in museum and Sunday School.
Heaven will welcome Jim.
