    My heartfelt condolences for all of the family. Philip was a kind, beautiful man. I remember all of us together at family cookouts at Philip and Betty s years ago as kids. My brothers and sister were closer to Jacki, it was always a highlight to our summers.
    I loved that Philip reconnected with me these last years.
    Prayers of comfort to all of you.
