I learnt today Dec 15, 2011 that Phil passed away Nov 28, 2011. Phil was my brilliant colleague, a genuine friend and we worked closely for several years at Bell Labs. Even when I retired from Bell Labs and joined Uniersity of Texas as a professor, I used to seek his counsel on various things. When I was in NJ a couple of years ago, I tried to call him, but I did not get a response.

I pray that God give you strength to live with this loss. I really do not know how he died, but it is irrelevant as long as he did not suffer.

I will miss him but I will always cherish his friendship and his help.
