Uncle Phil was always a big personality in my memories of growing up. I remember how he used to carry me around and make me feel like he was so scary! And Aunt Cook would tell him to stop and he would laugh ! He was always such a big teddy bear with a heart of gold. He would do anything for his family! He loved fiercely and never compromised his love for all of us. He was a strong presence and a force to be reckoned with! He was an awesome uncle. We will miss him terribly and his absence will be felt from our entire family unit. We love you uncle Phil and we hope you and aunt Cookie are enjoying cannolis and coffee and tea together ❤️

To Aunt Grace, Tally, Sally Ann, Chetta and all of your family,
I send my heartfelt sadness and condolences to you. I have wonderful memories of when you used to come up to Grandma Sadie and Grandpa Phil’s house. I remember the laughter and fun between Philip (I remember him as Flippy) and Aunt Marlene. God bless you all during this time of sadness and always. As the lovely tribute video said, “Philip has wings to fly”. He is with the angels now.
Love Janie
