Dear Linda, Joey, and Jodi,

We were saddened to hear of Phil's passing. He was a good neighbor and friend who looked after our mail and house when we were away from Charlotte. I will miss his voice calling out "Hi Bobby" when he saw me in the yard, the only person to call me by that name except for my family up North.

Our thoughts are with you all.
