I deeply regret that I didn’t get by to see Phil before his passing. We worked together and shared many good times. Pudding Head always could make the best out of any situation even when Buddy Horton knocked his front tooth out with a beer bottle! I regret even more that I will not be able to attend his services as I will be out of town. My heart felt condolences to the family.
