I was very much saddened to hear of Phil's death. Our little gang of Cook (class of 1962) School buddies always had at its nucleus Phil and his wonderful sense of humor. Im so glad I was able to meet Jan and see his beautiful home. Thinking fondly of him and all the crazy times we had growing up on the South Side.

Dear Hansen Family, Please know that Phil served as a true inspiration for many. I am so grateful that our paths crossed in this life. He always served as encouragement and support for me, especially when receiving my first appointment as Principal and during my early years as a CPS administrator. As a professional colleague, Phil was always available and ready to offer sound advice ... for that I remain eternally grateful. Please know that my prayers and thoughts are with you ... may loving memories comfort you and in time, help to soften the sadness of your loss.

My most heartfelt sympathy to the Hansen family.
I will always remember the Model United Nations conferences we used to bring our students to and how proud Phil was to see them engaged in peace making.
May he rest in peace knowing that made an impact on CPS.

Phil made probation into a positive experience. He was the model for central office employees who actually aspired to HELP schools and Principals. Rest in peace, Phil.

Dear Jan and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Phil was an outstanding educational leader and colleague who influenced reform efforts across the country. I appreciated his support and guidance during my years at CPS.
He will be deeply missed.

Dear Janet and Family,
Obviously you know that I didn't Phil that well. I know if we saw eachother we would say we knew eachother. But I have been reading through all the notes sent on this Guest Book and realize how much I missed knowing only OF Phil and his work for the school system, his family...and now am gaining a better understanding of why you were always smiling and happy Janet. I do believe that we will all be together again one day and when I get there, I will ask GOD to let Phil be one of the first persons I meet there. Be okay..I will pray for you and your family and friends.
