I have been one of Phillip’s caregivers since January. He and I created a special bond. I looked forward to my visits with him. After breakfast I would sit with him and have a cup of coffee. Sometimes we chatted other days we just watched TV. I was his “Gal Sal”. Rest In Peace my dear sweet Phillip.
