Not sure what to say?

Phil touched hundreds of lives on the Skokie Bookmobile over the years. His enthusiasm, wide range of knowledge and willingness to help all of us was an inspiration. I always looked forward to my visits on Fridays. He has passed his love of books to the others on the bookmobile. May his memory be eternal.

My deepest sympathies to the whole family. I'm sending many thoughts and prayers your way!

I enjoyed seeing Philip in the library bus over the past twelve years that we've lived in the area. He was always helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Philip is greatly missed by all who knew him.

He sounded like a real people person and I know he will be missed by many. His legacy would be to be like him and we know "Uncle Goofball" is headed in that direction. Our deepest sympathy to your whole family.

See you on the other side, Mr. Carlson. Front porch chats on at Shelly's will be remembered forever.

Mr C you will be missed. you will forever be in my heart
