Phillip's love for his mountain home, the trees, animals and creeks never left his thoughts. The memories that we shared and the acts of kindness to one another will always be remembered. Phillip always was so thankful and gracious for life's small gifts and we will always think of him with his overpowering smile and quick retorts. Phillip was my friend, and when it came time to leave his home he would say "can't you stay a little longer", "Stay" is a charming word in a friends vocabulary. Our love and Prayers go out to Joanie and Keegan.

Joanie and Keegan, I am still in shock, I can't get over that this brilliant soul no longer walks the earth. I will never forget his visits to Pittsburgh and our little "adventures". He was a unique, kind, rowdy, intelligent, humorous, and wonderful human. I am proud to be related to him and to both of you. You are always welcome in my home and I will always be here for both of you. I love you all.
