Judy,

We are so very sorry to hear of Phil's passing. Although we didn't get to often, we always enjoyed visiting with you both. Especially hearing stories from Phil's youth that included Grandma Roberts (Polly). Sending prayers for comfort during this difficult time.

Hugs,
Bryan and Missy Pemberton

Judy and family and friends.
I'm so sorry to hear of Phil's passing. He was a wonderful friendly man and I know how much he loved his family and his mother Helen. My love, prayers and condolences are with you at this sad time. I wish I was able to be there with you but health forbids it. God Bless you all and give you strength. With love and fond memories.
