  5. We will fondly remember Phil’s many visits to our home and how we spent many wonderful evenings listening to and singing along while he played the guitar (which he did very well!). We will miss his kindness and generosity.

  6. Phil:

    My life will always have a spot missing from it – that spot is you. We had our special times together which I will always treasure in my heart. You were more to me then just a brother-in-law, you were my friend and confidant. You were always there for me during the ruff times. You were truly a special and talented person. Until we are together again, you will live in my heart. Always and forever your ‘favorite sister-in-law’ and ‘number one groupie.’

    All my love,

  8. Phil- I will never forget that day in November, it was the end and the beginning for our family. The ending was that we would no longer be able to see or touch your smiling face, feel the effects of your warm heart. All of that was taken away. Phil-there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of you, and wonder what you would be like now. Would you be back home with mom and dad again? Married with children, or just whatever. I’m surely not the only one that misses you and thinks about you every day, there is mom and dad, they have never been the same since they lost you. As for your brothers they are still suffering and missing you in their own ways. We all sit around sometime and talk about how talented you were, when it came to music. You had a gift and didn’t even realize it. Thank God he give us some time to be able to acquire memories of you. Phil- you were the most caring person I have ever known and I am proud to be your sister. There will always be a special place in my heart for you. As for the beginning, you started it the day you met you maker. You are now at rest and there will be no more pain and torment for you. God called one of his lost Sheep home. You are now home with your maker and you couldn’t be in better hands. I’m sorry it took soo.. long for me to write about my wonderful and caring brother, but for some reason I just felt like today was the right time for me. You may be gone, but you are not forgotten. Until our paths meet again.

    Your loving sister and her Family;
    Marge, Tony, Michael, and Angela Perrera
