Phil was an old soul, and a musical prodigy. I would catch his gaze, and I could see into his soul, which was sweet and compassionate, and he cared deeply for his loved ones. I wish he had more opportunities to play his drums, with a band, or a studio musician. He was brilliant, and I´m crushed to hear that he was taken from this earth way too soon! Phil, you mean the world to me, and it will likely take another 10-20 years, before I can cope with losing you again. (To everyone reading this, thanks for putting up with my being so intimate, but this was the nature of our relationship.) I wish for Phil´s family, to find comfort, and peace, while they cope with this terrible loss. So important! I love you Phil!
