I'll always remember you with a smile. I'll cherish your brilliant mind, your incredible kindness and of course your amazingly bad taste. I'll remember what you gave me, and all the times you made made me blush, laugh, and think. I love you man.

Once upon a time, I met a very funny and kind person on Facebook. He made me laugh when I truly needed it, and taught me how to handle negative people without being hateful.
Thank you Philip...

My words here will mirror others, my friend. Your wit and heart were intelligent and fast. You often brought us to genuine laughter, as well as reflection.
Your voice was one of the first I found on this wild frontier, and thereafter, one I sought out.
I am so glad to have known you, Philip. May your journey be filled with delicious sammiches, and cats. Lots and lots of cats.

I will always remember you. Almost a decade ago, when I was just getting into Facebook groups, you always welcomed me and supported me in my youthful drama. You made me laugh and taught me about the realities of life, made me smarter and stronger. And I loved watching you roast trolls. You will be greatly missed

He will be dearly missed by a lot of people. Rest In Peace and ever onward to your next destination. We will have a sammich in your honor. Much love from Amanda & Michael

Philip was my friend for the past 7-8 years. He was always an intellectual powerhouse with an amazing sense of humor and an incredibly witty demeanor. He has touched so many lives just by being in them. He will always be loved and missed. Rest easy my friend.

I never got to meet you in person but you have been a part of my life via facebook for a good many years. Your wisdom, humor, and debate will be missed by me and many others dear friend. May you rest in peace free from pain and perhaps when my time comes we can finally meet.
