"Phil was the greatest needle artist in the world.
One of the ones I recall, was when in a game of Gin of 150 points. He beat me 150 to 15. After the game and after my paying him whatever the amount
was, he said to me, " YOU DID PRETTY GOOD, YOU GOT 15 POINTS."
One of my favorite memories " I miss you Phil."

"We want to thank everyone who was able to come to our father's memorial yesterday, and everyone who shared memories of our Dad even though they couldn't be there. All of you were an important part of our dad's life, and we know he would have loved being there to not only hear the stories, but add his own, and enjoy everyone's company.  We will miss him, but will hold our memories dear."
