Phillip we will never forget your smile or laugh.

"Although we seem so far apart,
You’re always here within our hearts.
You filled our lives with joy and pleasure
You were to us a precious treasure.
A little while shall pass and then,
We’ll see each other once again.
Loved, remembered and held so dear,
In minds and hearts you’re always here."

Cynthia and Phillip- I hope one day we will find out why God had to take our little Phillip from us. This will be the hardest Halloween
I've ever spent. Every year Phillip was the one child that I waited for, always so happy and proud of his costume. I loved and will miss seeing him in the neighborhood playing with the boys and loving life to the fullest. We loved when Phillip would go over to Grandma and Grandpas house and pass through our yard and would always greet us. Phillip it was our honor to have known you and please look over all of us, you are our angel.

Phillip was always smiling. I can still see him walking into school with his Chewbacca backpack on, his huge smile and his happy greeting to all that he passed. I was blessed to know him. He was one of the kindest and sweetest boys I have ever known and had the pleasure to work with. He was EVERYONE’S friend. He was like the Mayor on the playground. I will miss you little man. Rest easy among the stars little Jedi .
