Good Night, Phil...


My Brother-In-Law, Phil passed away last night.

Phil is a United States Marine.

Phil has earned a Bronze Star with a Combat V and two Purple Hearts while serving in Vietnam.

Phil has suffered with COPD, as a result of Agent Orange.

Phil was the oldest of four brothers, now there are two.

Phil is the forever love of his wife, Ginger.

Phil will remain a deeply loved Dad and Pop-Pop.

Phil was the best BIL, a girl could ask for... He suffered his seventh heart attack on Christmas...but called me on the 29th to see how I was recovering from my foot surgery. By the way...the photo above was taken at his grand-daughter's wedding-Phil ALWAYS wore a ball cap, even in the hospital. A hospital gown and a ball cap!

Phil....Go rest high on the mountain. Your work on earth is done.

May Almighty God wrap His loving arms around Phil, let him know eternal rest.
May Almighty God comfort all who love this man so.

Phil sounds like he truly lived his time on earth selflessly and with abundance, Theresa, and will be so missed!

I pray God is with you all in this time of sadness ((Hugs))

Even though I did not know Phil, he is my brother...

2 Timothy 4:7,8
7) I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8) Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

God Speed Phil....
