"Hard to believe it's been 4 years. You were taken from us much too soon! We will all see each other one day again and be with God. Your cousin, Joe"
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. I love you more and more each day. I know you're in a better place but the selfish part of me wants you here with me. You know that you're my heart and soul. Till we are together again, I give you my love."
"Gone too soon, Philly- remembering you on this sad anniversary . . . ."
we were just talking about you the other day. Carol brought up some photos from the first reunion. There were many photos of you, Diane, her beautiful daughter, Cha Cha, Bobbi Scalice, Carmen, Linda, Louie Solo, Ronnie Lorenzo and a woman I didn't know. I still miss you and I guess I always will. I hope your happy and smiling down at all of us.
Love and miss you much,
"I love you brother Phil......I wish I told you more when you were here with me. I found out that you don't know how much you really love someone until they are gone! It's been 4 years today that you left us! You still live in my heart! I love you RIP!"
"Happy Birthday Cousin! Thanks for being a good cousin and friend. Until we meet again......................."
"Happy Birthday in heaven. I miss our talks more than you know...xoxo"
Happy Birthday! I miss you much. Strange but I dreamt of you last night.
It's just so sad that your gone, I still find it hard to believe.
"Phil, I miss you a bunch and think of you all the time, especially around air shows - it is almost impossible to attend an airshow and NOT think of you!!!! Glancing through the photos on this wonderful memorial tribute site brings back so many great memories - no one can ever take memories away, something I reminded Diane of earlier today - have a great birthday dinner at Berry's on me, for old-time's-sake!!!! Happy Birthday, Cous . . . ."
"Hi Phil, Happy Birthday! It's been almost 4 years already and I still can't get over losing you! It's not the same without you! We were so close! So many people miss you! In the past four years we lost many friends! ChaCha passed last November! some of your friends from Broome st bar past away! and my beautiful sweet CoCo left me last year! I hope he is with Nicky playing together! I'm sure you are eating a lot of Brothers meat balls! and aunt Mary's Lasagna! Give Lynn a kiss and hug for me and tell her I miss her also with all my heart! Please stay with me I do feel your spirt around me,especially when I'm cooking! Ok my sweet handsome brother you take care up there and I will down here! It's a mess here! I think the world is going crazy, one good thing i'm sure you will be happy to know Obama will be gone in six months! I know how much you loved him! LOL See you soon!"
"I will always love you Phil. I think of you all of the time, especially Sundays, when we would have our long Sunday chats. I miss you Phil so very much.
"Philly, missing you terribly and thinking of you often - all the time, in fact. Your untimely passing has left such a huge hole in so many lives, all of us miss you very much, you meant so much to me and to most everyone who were touched by your life. Thinking of you, Cous . . . ."
"I love you....Can't shake this heartache! I loved you more than I knew! I can't get over losing you!"
"Another year passed and I miss you even more. I think of you everyday . I don't think my heart will ever heal. I love you.
Your forever hayseed"
"Wow I just found out about Phil He was such a great I had the pleasure of knowing. I met him over 16 yrs ago But from the day I met him it was like I knew him all my life. He came from Mullberry st And I worked on Mullberry st growing up. From the moment we met in Fl. I knew I had a friend in Phil. You are truly missed. R.I.P. Phil Thanks for the laughs"
"Happy Birthday in Heaven....xoxoxo"
"I've been told that angels throw pennies down from heaven. When you see one on the ground, pick it up and hold it tight because it's their way of letting you know they love you and are thinking of you.............I found a penny today. I love you too and I miss you more than words can say. You are my heart and soul. Till we meet again. I love you."
"So many times I go to pick up the phone and call you. Just to talk and share and remember the goods times and even the not so good times we nurtured each other through. We always ended up laughing. I miss our talks your love for over 30 years, but most of all I miss your laugh. You are my forever friend. As for stories...oh my friend I did promise never to tell...so until we can laugh about them again together. I love you and miss you!!!"
"Hi! That's what you said everyday when you called me! Oh brother Phil how I miss that word from you! I miss our walks every night I miss going to Car shows, Air shows and gun shows! I miss making our Salmon & Broccoli that you and I loved so much! But most of all I MISS YOU! I love you with all my heart! RIP my Handsome Brother."
"I think of you every day, say goodnight to you every night. I am hoping to have a day that you come into my thoughts with out the pain. Once in a while when thinking or speaking of you I smile but the pain is still with me. I love and miss you."
"Happy Birthday Phil! I miss you so much!!! I feel you around me! I love Love, Love, you! Your dog Sonny is doing well but, CoCo is 15 now and I know he will be leaving me soon! I do hope you will meet him at the rainbow bridge and take care of him till I get there! My heart still hurts so bad since you are gone!"
"One year and it hurts as badly as if it were yesterday. I miss you so much. I'll never be the same. I talk to you every day. I know you're with me. Sometimes just before I fall asleep, I feel you, telling me not to cry we will be together again . We will forever be joined. I love you."
"I think of you every day Phil and I miss you more than words can say. I miss our phone calls, arguments and tender moments. I do have great memories though. All those days up your house with Angie, John, Diane, and Arlene. Great cooking from Angie and lots of devilish moments with us. I wonder if Diane remembers the closet fiasco. Too long to write here. I miss u and love you very much."
It's a dreary day and my heart is heavy. I find myself in deep thought. July 28, 1975. The day that has forever changed my life. Happy anniversary. I miss you more than you can imagine. I love you"
"Happy Birthday Phil,
We always celebrated our birthdays together my friend....not having you around at least to get that annual email, leaves an emptiness.
You are always in my heart"
"Happy birthday Phil , we miss you, luv always kim"
"Never missed Philly's birthday, so thinking of you today, Cous - and missing you. Remebered you at the recent Reading, PA WW II show - lots of Mustangs that performed some powerful aerobatics, and a gorgeous B-17. How could I NOT think of you?"
"Happy Birthday in heaven Phil, you are missed and thought of by all who knew and loved you ...
"PS Rob was probably greeting him and they are probably telling each others stories of their lives!!! Big hugs to you, Lou & Louie"
"Dear Diane, i am so so sorry for your loss. By the look on your face when you came into my work i knew you had bad news to tell me. I loved working with Phil and he was such a blessing, he always made me laugh and was such a joy. He will be greatly missed and just remember he is no longer in pain and is in a better place. We will see him again, Love always Kim"
Another sleepless night. I don't think I can do this.I've always been able to make you better. My heart won't let my head rest. I miss you every second of the day. I'm worried for Diane. I want her pain to go away but I know that's an impossibility. So many thoughts......I love
and miss you always."
I can't even remember what day it was, but it was 1980 when we first met at Broome Street when we bonded. I slept on your couch more than i did in my little studio in Brooklyn then and how we talked all night, every night about....everything. Lord i will miss you."
"I MISS YOU SO MUCH,THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WORDS TO TELL YOU. WE HAD SO MUCH FUN AT THE RESTURANT, GOING OUT OR BREAKFAST, LUNCH & DINNER, GETTING SO CLOSE, PLANNING OUR TRIP TO NY SO U COULD SHOW ME YOUR TOWN.TALKING EVERYDAY ON THE PHONE. I LOVE YOU, AND MISS YOU, AND I WILL SEE U SOON... HEAVEN HELP US WHEN GET TOGETHER..SO GLAD I WAS THERE TO SEE YOU AND TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH YOU MENT LUVU"
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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...."
"I think of you everyday..You are in my heart forever...I love you..."
"Anyone having pictures of phil and would like to post on his memorial, send pictures to Diane21@tampabay.rr.com.and I will post them for you."
"My dearest Phil, I'll miss you always, you were my rock, you were my strength, you believed in me. Thank you for all the love. Because of you I worked with Fed-Ex for 30 yrs. May you rest in peace. Until we meet again. God Bless, Love MudgieRose"
"To my favorite brother-in-law Phil. There is not a day that goes by without something reminding me of you.......I truly miss my buddy. Dunkin Donuts will never be the same! Love you,miss you,till we meet again. Lou"
"I remember all the wonderful years together. I always thought you were
so handsome. Say hi to all our family. Love to Frankie I miss him.
Tell him I am smiling when I look in the clouds. I know our moms are busy cooking for all of you. Love you Denise and Nick"
"I'll NEVER forgot you and all the Great memories of all of us growing up together, but I will try to forget the pain at the end, your now in the safest and strongest hands of GOD in his perfect world and I feel somehow better to know your with grandpa, grandma Lynn and even Dusty and Duke- We will meet again, I'm counting on it- I Love You Always... Please always watch over us Xoxo"
. You are my best friend and I love you always. I miss you so much. I.
can't believe you're gone. I will always need you on so many levels. Wait for me. We'll be together someday. I will think of you each day with a smile and a tear. Take care of Lynn ,Bobby, and Nicky. Till we meet again."
"I miss you....I wanted years :("
"I know we will see each other again in Heaven but until then my heart will never be whole again.
"I LOVE YOU MY SWEET BROTHER""
"The day my brother passed away, was the day part of me died with him.
There is not a day that goes by I don't think about him.I miss him.
I miss him so much sometimes I think it's a dream.
I know that you're in a better place and you're no longer suffering but I just wish you were still here."
Have a suggestion for us?
