We, his family, Thank God for the life that Philip lived.
WE MISS YOU and WE LOVE YOU DEARLY!
Until We Meet Again
Those special memories of you
will always bring a smile
If only I could have you back
for just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again
just like we used to do
You always meant so very much
and I will always love you
The fact that you’re no longer here
Will always cause me pain
But, know you’re forever in my heart
until we meet again.
