    Phil was my brother. Not by human blood, but the blood of Jesus. In February, Phil and Cheryl drove to my city to meet me before they went on a cruise. I hadn’t seen either of them since I moved last year. We laughed and talked like it had only been a few days. I spoke to him a couple of weeks ago. Again, we laughed and cried and talked. I am going to miss those conversations. God rest high on that mountain, Phil, for your work on earth is done. You have earned your eternal reward. Love you brother. See you soon.

    It was a blessing to get to know Phil at church. You could tell he knew how to let the Holy Spirit give him the courage he needed. He was a man of many talents and will be missed.

    Ms. Cheryl and family I am so sorry for your loss. I am so sorry that I was unable to attend visitation or the funeral services. I was unaware of the arrangements. You and your family will be in our prayers. I have known Phil for most of my life. We grew up together and attended church with his family at Tabernacle Baptist Church together. I love all of his family. If I can help you in any way please do not hesitate to contact me. God Bless.
