Charles, Martha, Charles, Jr. and Richard, my heart is so heavey for you. No one knows how hard it really is to loose a child or a brother, until you have gone through it. Phillip is is a much better place. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I pray the family and friends of Phillip receive the peace of God that excels all thought. The entire chapter 37 of Psalms is a uplifting chapter to read at times like this. I especially like the end of verse 28 where it says that God will never leave his loyal ones. Continue in prayer to our wonderful Heavenly Father and He will carry you through.

Our condolences go out to the Abel family for such a loss.
Of the many times Phillip and I (Kent) spent together, there was never a dull moment.
He always had a humorous attitude and if someone had a problem, whether plumbing or something else, he could put a smile back on their face.
I'm sure he has a big smile on today, doing that little laugh, because he's in such a better place.
I'll miss reminiscing our high school days at Leeds, like we did regularly.
We've had many years of memories that will live forever.

Again, our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
