Not sure what to say?

I am a former Louisville Zoo employee and heard about your tragedy. We have always been an extended family. I am very sorry for your loss and your family is in my prayers. God bless, Rachel

You are all in our thoughts! Our deepest condolences.

Deepest condolences to the family and friends during this most difficult time. There are no words that can ease the pain of losing someone so beloved. May you find comfort and peace in knowing that your loved one is in God's memory. Psalms 116:15

Phil was always a ray of sunshine in the room, a truly wonderful man. The world has lost a treasure, he will be greatly missed. So sorry I cannot make the memorial service, sending hugs & prayers.

Kathy I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't really know Phil but the kindness you both showed Tony and I when we visited with Steve and Deb said a lot to us. He made Tony's trip to Churchill Downs one that he loved and told everyone about. Not that many men would show that kindness to someone they had just met. Hold on tight to your family and remember all the good memories. He is with God now and watching over you and your loved ones.

Uncle Phil will always be remembered as a kind man who's positive energy would flow off of him and fill a room with happiness. If you were having bad day, a simple conversation would leave you feeling better. He never had a negative thing to say and always smiled. Uncle Phil, you will be forever missed. We love you and miss you. ~ Carl, Micho, and kids.

Kathie and family,
We are devastated on losing our precious traveling companion. Kayaking Alaska and Bar harbor and other memories will be with us always.
