|Phillip Ray Schuman is lovingly remembered by his family and friends.|
"Happy Birthday Daddy! I was just looking at the picture we took at the Hard Rock Casino Sunday Brunch with the boys - missing you today. As you watch over us, I know you feel this has been a good year for everyone - all continue to grow and flourish. You have a new great granddaughter on the way to join your two great grandsons! We love you and miss you every day."
"Dear Uncle Phil, How is it possible that 3 years have passed since you moved to heaven? You are so mussed. Not a day goes by that we dont think about you. You touched so many lives with your love, devotion to family and joy in seeing your near and dear ones blossom and make their own achievments. One day we will again be together but for now, we will thank God for our time, joys, challenges shared, and pray you continue to rest in peace. Lovingly, Kathy Munson"
"The day you got to the end of the beginning, Dad. I miss you, but I'm so thankful you show up in my dreams to let me know you are still with us.
Happy trails to you, until we meet again, my father."
How quickly the years pass - you were right, they do get shorter as we get older and they are a smaller and a smaller percentage of the whole of our lives. Can't believe it has been three years. Your children and grandchildren and great grandchildren are making you proud every day! All are flourishing and creating and going places! Your legacy lives on in the voices of your family - we love you and miss you every day!"
"An amazing dream this morning. You were standing at the front counter of the lab, Maggie was running the lab, and you and I started talking. It was circa 1990? and I told you I was from the future in 2017. You asked about family and I told you I had two grandsons, and you got weepy and said that meant you had two greatgrandsons. You smiled and said wow! We talked a bit more about family and I asked you what the date was. You looked at your Rolex with a datejust and just as you were going to tell me, I woke up. I felt so warm and loved. Thank you for all of those "talks" we had - Happy Birthday. I love you."
"Your legacy lives on in your children, grands, and great grands. It is a glorious day today, one that inspires Poets and artists. We miss you and love you."
"As our sorrow and pain from our losses slowly ebb with the passage of time, what endures are our loving memories of our parents and the many life lessons they have helped us learn. Dad frequently mentioned that I was really getting an education at his side, as first he, and then I, for him, handled his complicated business affairs. "Always bet on human nature" was his consistent advice. We haven't forgotten, and will always remember, what we have learned from them. We see them in ourselves and our progeny. May others one day look back and say we have done as well as they."
"My father taught me how to cross the street safely , how to swim and how to earn a living. I remember him telling me,after the "earn a living" lesson how relieved he was each time he succeeded in each of these endeavors . Dad was the original "out of the box" thinker and that ability has been passed down to my two brothers and my dear sister. In all our efforts,we take these skills with us in life. Dad had two exceptional women as his partners in business and marriage ,and I am forever shaped by the love and talents of both of my Mothers. On this day and always - you are loved and missed."
"Happy Birthday Daddy - February is a special month since you and Mom both have February birthdays. As you look down from your vantage point, you can see the progress we are all making. We love you and miss you, but are happy you are now flying again! Enjoy the day with Mom and Chris and Uncle Roland and all of the angels."
"It's been a year since you had to leave us, and it seems both far longer and shorter than that. Thanks for visiting me in my dreams, and letting me now you're fine. Your legacy is a complicated one, but a great one as well. May God continue to bless your soul, as He blessed me with you as my father. I'll catch up with you a little later down the road."
"I see you every day in the lives of my children, your grandchildren - they have your love of adventure, of spontaneity, and weird sleep patterns (the boys). Your great grandsons share your curiosity and math genius and love playing games. I miss you every day."
"Happy Birthday, Dad. Have Chris and Mom sing you a song today - we love you very much and miss you every day."
"You come alive in the stories your children tell about you and it tells the story of a brilliant, mercurial, charismatic man who they will miss like air.To Bill and Christopher, who I look on as family, and to the Schuman Family, my love and solidarity.To be the shining souls you are, you had to spring from a beacon. That light will shine forever now keeping watch over his beloved family."
"My father was a force of nature. With his very sharp mind, he discovered the secret 60 years before the book came out. Those lucky enough to even get close to his whirlwind of ideas achieved great success. He bravely fought this last battle of his life for just short of six years. I am completely blessed he was my father. RIP, Dad. You changed the lives of so many, but especially my own."
"Phil was very special to me. I remember so well, his wonderful story telling,lectures on motivation,his big hugs,and the support he was always so eager to give :) To me he was always very warm...he loved being a free spirit, gambling of course("the game!The win!) Phil definitely helped impact the direction of my career. He will be forever missed.:("
"Your handsome smile will always be with me Uncle Phil. In the Big Casino in the Sky just remember, "know when to fold them, hold them, and for heaven's sake---walk away!!!" The dealer up there has stacked odds :). I love you always.
Your niece Kathy Munson"
