Phil had a huge impact on my life and my vocational choice. I was in choir at REL for three years and learned much from him. I took voice lessons from him my senior year and he invited me to sing a solo at First Baptist Church Mineola, where he was Minister of Music.
Thank you, Phil.

Dr. Point was the choir director at Robert E. Lee in the mid 60's.
He was one of my favorite directors.

Uncle Phil spoke at both my parents funerals, Dad in 1998 and Mom in 2010. I'll always be thankful.
