    I have known Phil for years. He was friends with my parents when they were still alive. Both Wanda & Phil are like family to me. I will miss seeing him when we come up to visit almost every summer. Wanda, you are in my thoughts & prayers. You and Phil were always so amazing together. I will really miss him.
