Dorene, Phil was always so kind about thanking someone else for something they had done. And then, doing so much himself for others. We will miss seeing him sit by you in church, and of course you will even more. So, we pray for you and your hurt during these times to come. We know of your faith, as well as of Phil's, and we trust God for all that is needed for you and the family.
God's love and ours to you.
Russell and Beth
