"Joan, I was Bob's 1st Cousin. His mom Thelma was my father Raymond Phillips' sister. I have searched for Bob for yeas while doing genealogy work on our family. I was really saddened to just find him today only to learn he died last November. My condolences to your family. I do have a few photos from our childhood in Atlanta, You can tell your children and grand children that their Bob's 2nd great grandfather (Joseph Phillips) fought in the War of 1812 for which he received an 80 acre land grant in Alabama. I'm so sad. I had so much to tell Bob."
