I knew PJ from the time of his birth and for many years the Kuys were a second family to me. I babysat and played with all the kids. I cannot believe that PJ is gone and send loving sympathy to Jane, Oliver, Adrian, Caroline and Joanna.

On behalf of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, we would like to express our sadness over Philip's death and our sympathy to his family.
Philip was a supporter of our organization and shared stories of his cherished dogs, his compassion for all animals and his love of music with us over the years. We always enjoyed hearing from him. We are grateful to be chosen as a recipient of donations in his honour. All donations will be used to protect animals around the world from extinction, cruelty and abuse.

We are very sorry for your loss. I only saw Philip once a few days before he passed away, driving the dog(s) in the car. I remember thinking that he seemed like a nice person. It is sad that I never got to meet him. Steve says Philip and Jane gave him a lift one day.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you who had the gift of knowing Philip.
