I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Phillip was one of the best welder/fabricators I ever met. He was a great friend and I will miss him very much. His family meant the world to him. He was a larger than life, unique individual. I was blessed to know and work with him. I shall never forget him and look forward to seeing him when I get to heaven.
