My deepest love and sympathy to my family, Uncle Bill, Gary and Anitra. I will always treasure my memories with Philip when a was a little girl. One thing I remember most was playing ping pong with Philip and Gary. Philip is a loving, kindhearted man and will be greatly missed by all of our family. He is at peace now and joined with our loved ones in Heaven. May you find peace in knowing this Uncle Bill and Kim.

To our favorite, Captain Philip.
We will miss you in many ways but especially for you kindness and infectious smile. Your quiet demeanor hid your big heart and ongoing generosity. Kim is family to us, so we will be there for her, always.💔

I loved our life! I tried so hard not to fall in love with you because of my previous pain but YOU made it IMPOSSIBLE. You will always be "my George"!

To my daddy, I had you trained so well. Thank you for keeping me safe for mommy and I promise to take care of her. I will miss our naps and double team belly rubs. Kizmo SG

Your first family vacation with Kim and her family. I was so upset and threw a fit in Arby's eating dinner, about you being gone for a couple of days. You bought me a plane ticket and took me with you. Our unbreakable bond is never going to be replaced.
I love you Papaw, forever and always.
