I have many memories of Phil, but those from the summer of 1971 seem to stand out. Over the decades we spoke often of that time, never failing to get a laugh as we recalled scraps of days that seemed to pass so slowly. It was a time of new friends, drive-in movies, an awkward blind date, and even a few dicey encounters. Mostly the time was easy and slow, a season truly lived, not just attended.

I feel blessed to have known Phil. He was the best kind of friend--the kind who was openly accepting of others, warts and all--and he was a good man with a big heart and a trenchant mind. I will sorely miss the talks we have had over these many years.

Until we meet again, old friend.
Until then.
