God said that he would be a husband to the widow and a father to the fatherless. Hold him to his promise Pat. I rejoice that Phil is in heaven, suffering no more, with Kelsie, talking with the saints of the Bible, seeing Jesus, God hugging him. I am sad for you and the family who have to learn to live without him. May God comfort you and bless you and hold you in his arms.

Met Phil and Pat at outpatients in Yarmouth last August. We talked a lot. They saw this coming, and wisely opted for quality over quantity.

Pat, I'm sure all is well with Phil now, but you know that already.
