first time i met phillip was 1982 or so. i was with 2 friends who had mopeds and i had a bicycle trying to keep up. when we we got to phillips' house he told the two friends i came with to leave and invited me in, evidently annoyed that one of them didn't offer me a ride on the back of their moped. i went in and met his brother vince and his mom and step-dad. we were friends from then on. i always looked up to phillip. he was like my big brother, and always looked out for me. i could tell a thousand great stories but that isn't the point. i love phillip, he was and remains in my memory one of the most stand up guys i've ever known. shellie i knew you to a bit in high school. i really can't tell you how sorry i am, and i'm sorry i never had the honor of meeting your children.

God is with you right now even though you might be really pissed at Him. don't worry bout that, He can take your anger, He and His Son, our Lord has us all in our in His arms.

i am so sorry.

To Phil's family: I am so terribly sorry to hear abouth Phil's passing. As one of Phil's brothers at the AKL house at KU, we had too many great memories to list. However, my fondest memory of Phil was our road trip our Sophomore year to Daytona Beach. 20 hours in a car will offer you the opportunity to get to know someone well. He had a great sense of humor and loved to live life to the fullest. My families thoughts and prayers are with you.

Shellie, Kyle and Taylor & Ron and Diana – Our family’s thoughts and prayers are with you all. Phillip was a special person with an exceptional quality, making life better and more enjoyable for everyone he interacted with. I always think of Phillip when I hear the Rolling Stones’ – You Can’t Always Get What You Want. We had a lot of good times and the world is certainly a dimmer place today.

To the Wolcott family:
Dear Shellie and family, I am deeply shocked at the sudden tragedy that has descended upon your life. My heart aches for your loss and I lament over the pain you and your family must be feeling. It bothers me intently to imagine the vastness of your torment, I love and miss you; there remains an open-ended invitation for anything I can possible do to help you in your time of anguish and despair.
I had the blessing of knowing Philip in Kindergarten, and through high school. You, as well, were a very close friend in high school; who could possibly forget our Kingman days.
As you and your family slowly adjust to your loss please remember to take care of yourself. God has not forgotten you; nor has He walked away from your side. Philip is at rest and has found true peace in Heaven. I pray you find a covering from God that will allow you and the children serenity, comfort and strength; not only in your life, but most exclusively through Him. God is there waiting for you to reach out to Him; all that's required is belief, love, and the desire in your heart to know Him.
Growing stronger in your Faith and relationship with God will take you through what seems like a suffocating impossibility. Allow yourself to honestly grieve, for this remains the key towards recovery. Time for grief remains exclusive to you; ignore the limiting expectations society has set for you in your journey through loss, pain, and eventual renewal. Recovery has no specific expiration date, everyone's experience is different; no one can condemn your individual voyage through loss and healing.
Again, please remember my family and I am always here for you and your children; not to mention, we aren't too incredibly far from you. If nothing else, remember I love you, and the life you’ve had with Philip and your talented, extraordinary children is a journey through life that most people never ever experience. You, your children and family are in our daily prayers. Please call if you ever want to, no matter what the hour or circumstances; Christy or Sandy know how to reach me, so inquire anytime. I Love You Shellie,
Andrea and Fish family

To the Wolcotts:

I'm so sorry for your loss. My heart is heavy for all of you. The love that Phil gave to each of you will carry you throughout your life. There is no doubt that he was an awesome father, husband, son, friend, etc. He had a terrific smile and was always willing to establish rapport with anyone. That set him apart from many :) The last conversation I had with him - he had me laughing. I was calling him a "BMX rookie parent" - because he wanted to know the time of a race, yeah right, he was far from a rookie!

Taylor: I lost my father at thirteen and it was a "must" that I be strong; I hope you, too, will continue to be strong. Your dad is watching over you....he's got your back; along with your extending BMX family.

With love and hugs, Jamie Canevari

I look at your picture and still can't believe you are gone. You are/were so young and so full of life. Your smile radiated a room and your hugs warmed the soul. I'm glad that you passed in your sleep because you deserved no pain. Now you get to be with God in complete peace. I am happy for that. Please watch over your family and every once in a while give them signs that you are with them. Keep Smilin' Philip xoxoxo
