I can't believe 8ts been 4 years since you passed. I speak to you every day and I miss you more than you can know. I often listen to your voice mails and still my heart breaks.

Till we are together again, I give you my love."

"I only wish I could turn back time and tell you how honored I was to know you, You always treated me like one of the guys and you always had a big smile for me. It meant so much to me! Little brothers and sisters need to be treated as equals by the older children in the circle of family and friends. I learned to drive in the 55 Chevy you sold Richie and was my all time favorite Car."

"Hey pal, i miss you from afar. Understandably you didn't make the trip back up here this summer as you said you would. I was looking forward to breaking bread with you again as we used to when you lived up here. I still can't believe you put ketchup on the meatballs that i made in Broome St. Bar. i think you ate about 15 of them. Anyway, i really miss you Phil. Till we meet again."

"Ron and did not know Phil very well, but whenever we crossed paths, I could not help  noticing how wonderful of a brother he was to you and your family. We are so happy that you were able to spend these last years together.  May he rest in peace. We are thinking of you and sharing your sorrow."

This tribute was added by Robert Mastandrea on 28th September 2012

"I have so many cherished memories of Phil and the times we spent together, it is perhaps the only mechanism by which we who are left on earth carry on absent someone we loved so much - no one can steal those memories from us.  Philly was simply a great, caring, generous guy, and his memory will buoy me forever."

This tribute was added by Robert Mastandrea on 28th September 2012

"There are those very rare family relationships where friendship transcends the famial connection - this was certainly indicative of my realtionship with Philly.  There are too many common denominators to list.  A part of me has left this earth with Philly, and there are no words to asuage our collective anguish in his untimely and far-too-early passing.  I love you, Cuz, and will miss you."

This tribute was added by Ronnie Lorenzo on 26th September 2012

"I met Phil around 1963, either in Cha-Cha's or Columbus Park, I didn't grow up on Mullbery St.but once I got to know Phil it was like i grew up there. For the next 40 some years ,We would run into each other.Sugar, and I have fond memories when We met at Cha's. Phil always liked when Me and the Guys would sing the oldies, nostalgic memories to be cherished."

This tribute was added by Sugar Leffler on 25th September 2012

"Dear Phil, where do I begin...so very many memories going back to our childhood. There has never been a time when you were not a part of my life. I'm having a difficult time accepting this. For as long as I live so will you live too as you will always be alive in my heart and my mind. I will NEVER forget you. You knew me better than anyone else on this earth. I'll always love you. Lucy."

This tribute was added by Ellen Connolly on 25th September 2012

"From the first time I met Phil we were brought together by the love of our dogs. I knew in an instant anyone who could show such kindness to an animal would be an incredible human being. I can't walk past his home without shedding a tear and saying a prayer that God has him in a good place with loved ones and his beloved Nicky ( his Maltese ( canine boy ) WE miss you Phil...."
