Wing, Yi & I got together few years ago. We all wondered where you are & what do you do. Although we lost track of you, everytime we talked about MassART; we must have mentioned about you. How did you spend a week sleeping under your studio desk .....how hard working you are at MassART as an industrial design student. Your dream, your heart, your dedication have touched all our hearts. Today you're in a better place. I still believe that you'll still in our conversations everytime we meet. Philip, we will miss you until we see each other.

Phil’s family, I had the pleasure of working with Phil at the N. Quincy P.O. He was a pleasure to work with and a true gentleman and family man, I remember how the whole office was sad to see him go when he transferred out to Wellesley, all of us in N. Quincy are thinking of Phil’s family during this difficult time.

Yin, Evelyn, Winston,
My thoughts have been with you all since I heard this news. Phillip always showed such love and care for Winston while he was in my class and Winston’s love for his dad was always apparent. Your family will always be so special to me and I am continuing to send you so much love and prayers during this time. Please reach out any time for anything.

‘Phillip is the one of the bravest and most loving man I know. He faced his decease with such great courage. I can see that all along his difficult journey, his biggest concern was always not himself but the well beings of his wife, kids and family. He is our beloved brother in Christ and he will be missed dearly.’
