Our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of ACTS Brother and Brother Sir Knight, Phil! We were blessed to know Phil and be his friend, to be on retreat with him and the Lord. We were blessed to have fun with him and family at various times. Phil was so supportive of Larry becoming a permanent deacon and took pride in praying for him each and every day by name along with many others. We admired Phil's love of Our Lord and his dedication to reading and meditating on The Word every day. What strong faith and love of God and of neighbor! We'll miss you, Phil, but know you are still praying for us. We know you will rest in peace and will experience the eternal glory of God's Kingdom.
