    Dear Barb & Lois
    We were so saddened to hear of Phil’s passing. As neighours in Dawson Creek we still fondly recall the home-made ice-cream,showing the children your farm animals, Phil,s help when things went wrong with our “water system”. Phil was a true gentleman and showed understanding and kindness to all.

    Dear Barb and Lois,
    We’re so very sorry to hear of Phil’s passing. We remember being your neighbours in Arras. Phil was always such a quiet, kind man. We recall the great care he took of the T-Bird! Our thoughts are with you.
