I was very saddened to learn of Phil's passing. Phil and Lois are great people and whenever I would see them either in South Haven or Chicago, I would greet them together as Plillis. Phil and Lois were inseparable as they should be and my heart goes out to the entire Lapine Family. Phil was a great and extremely considerate man and he will be sorely missed!! David S. Atlas

I first met Phil in September, 1955, when we were neighbors at 6210 N. Hoyne Avenue. in the Rogers Park area. We have remained good friends ever since. Since the early 90's, we have also been business associates. Nobody could have a better friend than Phil. I certainly agree with the description of a positive attitude toward life, even including the later difficult years of his life. My sincere sympathy to Lois and the rest of his family. Phil will be missed by everyone who knew him. Rest in peace, my friend.
