Phillip was my neighbor in Monroe. He was a very nice man who was always lending a helping hand without being asked. Once my dog broke through the fence and Phillip helped me catch her.The next day when I came home from work,Phillip ,out of the kindness of his heart,had repaired my fence.He also fixed the tarp on the boat in my back yard. He LOVED to talk about fishing. All the neighbors liked him. He is missed.
