|A Million I Love You's.....|
In loving memory of Phillip. You are always in my heart, my thoughts and in spirit forever with me. I know you and Dad are always with me wherever I am and wherever I go.
"You are forever missed Phillip -
The passage of time may make some memories fade, but others are still so clear.
Remembering you today and always - Aunt Jamie"
"After all these years still missing you. Pray for all of us left behind. Love you always. Grandma"
"Thinking of you today and remembering all the good times we've shared. We will never forget you. I love you!!"
"Last night as I locked up the house, my mind was on you and the seven years it's been since I last saw you. I leaned against the door, closed my eyes and heard your laughter in my mind and memories. I miss you. I love you....forever and ever, Amen! Niki"
I love you always and forever. Keep watch over all of us and pray for us. Mom"
"Happy Birthday Phillip! Thinking of you always. Remembering you always. Missing you always. Loving you always. Grandma"
"Good morning Phillip, Happy Birthday! The last few days you have been on my mind continuously as I waited for your birthday to arrive; kinda like the day you were born: anticipation! I didn't want to forget to tell you happy birthday like I have in the past, I'd think about it, become distracted with work or whatever was going on and forget to call. At mass yesterday Father Clem focused on dying and even though a great number of people can die all together, when we face our judgement with God, we do that alone. No one can do it for us. No one can take our place. We are naked before God with all our flaws and imperfections laid open before Him. What is awesome is the great Mercy He shows and gives us! The love. The waiting He does to enfold us to Him when we stray away or commit sin. I struggle daily to love like that: all consuming without judgement. What's funny, is that since you died, I love you more, I don't remember your flaws and imperfections, I remember your generous spirit and love. Hmmmm.....something for me to ponder on today! I love you forever....Niki"
"Happy birthday Phillip! 35 years ago God gave me you. In January I had decided to work as scheduled, because I realized I would spend this day, the day's previous, and the days ahead thinking of you regardless of what I am doing, or where I'm at. I have thought of you every day of my life since the day you were born. I want to spend this special day thanking God for you, and the 28 years you were with us here, And also I thank God continuously that you are still with me, just in a different and better way. I will remember how many prayers you have answered for me. I love you and miss you always. Watch over me until God calls me home and I see you once more."
I dreamed of you.
All of a sudden I saw you standing in front of me. I was surprised and delighted. I was so joyful to see you once more. You were so real...blue eyes and golden blond hair standing so straight, so tall, so familiar and yet like a mirage.
Oh...If only dreams came true!
You talked to me in the same familiar voice, how I eagerly waited for your smile, your laugh, but you were so serious looking at me with love. You talked to me, said so many things, how I wish I remembered every word.
Oh...If only dreams were true!
You left me for a while and how I searched for you. I cried out to you, "don't leave me, stay with me, there is so much I want to say."
Suddenly there you were at my side.
Oh....If only dreams came true!'"
"Remembering you and especially your dad this weekend - beautiful weather...lots of memories...good company...sore muscles...a little sad, but felt God's presence and guiding hands."
"Phillip, I've been thinking a lot about you lately. Nothing is the same as it was so many years ago. Days still come and go and the world continues to turn, but everything is different now. I know you see and know all about the changes in our lives. After all these years I still miss you and long to see you again so much. God is slowly healing my heart and slowly the pain gets a little less and I am starting to enjoy life again. I can't keep walking backwards up the stairs, it's time to move forward. I love you and miss you. Until we meet again watch over us."
Just a little note to ask you and your dad to pray for the family, and all families. We love you both.
Aunt Donna & Uncle Tommy"
"6 years ago, on this day, we were all in a state of shock and filled with sadness to learn of your death. But as time has gone by, I have slowly learned to accept your death and my own immorality. I don't know why God took you from us...but it is not for me to question. I know that you and your Dad are watching over all of us today and always. You are missed terribly! I love you! Aunt Wanda"
"Remembering all that we shared...all of the laughs and tears!
Missing all that we shared!
Love you and miss you buddy!"
"The difference of today and 6 years ago today. I feel the suns radiant warmth and see its light as I sit outside and wait for the day to begin. I embrace the quiet of the morning before all the noise of life begins. I embrace the peace inside. I embrace whatever God has chosen for me today. Be it sorrow and tears when I visit you at the cemetery; be it tears or happiness when I hear certain songs that are full of memories; be it sadness that I can't see or hug you once more; be it freedom to love others fully even though there could be pain; be it working in my yard and enjoying the benefit of hard work or be it the beauty of Gods love in me and in you. I choose to celebrate you, today and tomorrows. You have not been forgotten, you will not be forgotten. I love you forever...Niki"
"Phillip, this morning is much like the one 6 years ago. It is Sunday, and I am up early getting ready for church. Prayers for all today...especially those that relive this day in all its horror and sadness. I do not understand God's ways, but I trust in His providential plan."
"Happy Birthday Phillip! Listening to the song that came on when the webpage opened made me think about the times we would sit either in Niki's house or outside listening to music. Or when we went to a concert together to see Cake and No Doubt. You are not forgotten. Thanks for your prayers. Love, Sarah"
"Happy Birthday Phillip! As I looked at your picture on my dresser this morning, I said the same blessing I've said many a time, along with making a sign of the cross on your forehead: You are a beautiful child of God and I am blessed to have you in my life. Oh how I would rather say in person once more, but if I had that wish, I'm sure I'd want more! Love you always, Niki"
"Happy birthday Phillip. Love you always and remembering forever. Grandma"
"Thinking about you Phillip as I look at your pictures on this site.
Seeing the passage of time as you grew up from a child to a young man - and remembering the good times.
"I'm remembering 34 years ago of your birth and memories of you rush to fill my mind and my heart leaving an ache; that same old heartbreak. I'm left here wishing and longing. Happy birthday son, keep watch over me until we meet again in heaven. I love you
"Happy Birthday Phillip! Please pray for our family. We love you. Aunt Donna & Uncle Tommy"
"Happy birthday Phillip!! Know that you are missed by all of us you have left behind here in this earthly world. Watch over us and help remind us to live life to the fullest each and every day. I love you!!"
"Rembering always! Grandma"
"Missing you Phillip
Always in my heart
A million "I love you's"
"Happy New Year Phillip! Happy New Year Donald! Another year has passed, and the time for me to join you is closer. I do look forward to seeing both of you again. Pray for me and Grandpa as our time to meet our God nears. I love you both and pray for you every day. Much love! Grandma."
"Phillip, how can so much time pass and yet losing you seems as if it was yesterday? Many times a day I think of you, and miss you, longing to see you again. I love you, I miss you, and I look forward to that day when we meet again in heaven."
"Five years ago. Just Yesterday. I vividly recall the memories of that day, that moment in time of saying one last I love you, one last goodbye....trusting in Jesus to guide you home.
I love you forever....niki"
"Dear Phillip five long years have passed since you were called home. We have missed you and still think of you daily. Each day brings me closer to the day when we meet again. Love you forever. Grandma"
So it has been 5 years today. So much has changed since then. Most of life's surprises have been good, but a few have not. Such is life. Help us. Help your mom and brothers. Put a smile on their faces and a song in their hearts. I love you.
"When I woke up this morning the first thing I remember thinking was, today is your birthday, Happy Birthday Phillip! As I traveled around the county seeing my patients, you were with me. I love you. Niki."
"Happy Birthday Phillip. I was thinking about you all day, and finally got on to send these wishes to you. Continue to intercede for us. Love you always! Grandma"
"You would have been 33 today. Happy birthday in heaven. It gets easier as the years pass, but I do miss you so! Wish I could see you just one more time....but one more time would never be enough.
Ask God to grant many graces and gifts to all the family on this special day. Actually every day! May all of us see and understand the graces and gifts God gives to us each day. Until we meet in heaven, I love you always. :)"
"Happy Birthday, Phillip! I have some work for you to do on your birthday..(sorry, but I know you will enjoy this work). Please pray for us, interceed for us before God. Help us to do the right things and be pleasing in His sight. Ask for strength for us, and laughter, and joy. Aunt Donna"
"Happy Birthday Phillip - a big hug to you - Love, Aunt Jamie"
"Thinking of you and your dad this evening and missing you still after all these years. Love you grandma"
"Phillip, now that Dad's with you in heaven, I hope you are showing him around. Knowing you are together enjoying God and heaven gives me peace. I Know you both are praying for me and helping me every day. Thank you Phillip for loving me unconditionally. With all that being said I STILL miss you. I love you always."
"Merry Christmas, Phillip! I am grateful for your life. Pray for us.
Aunt Donna & Uncle Tommy"

They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

"Merry Christmas Phillip! Grandma"
"It is almost Christmas and I think of you every day and miss your laughter and "what ya doing" when you entered my house and your hug and "I love you take care" when you left. Merry Christmas Phillip. Love Grandma"
"Phillip At mass on all Saints Father Clem said all who have died in Christ and had their robes cleansed in the blood of the Lamb were saints in heaven. It warmed my heart to know you and your dad were together and we were praying to you to aid us to reach heaven. Grandma"

"This morning, like all mornings, I was thinking of you. Since you went home I did not like listening to the radio, then I thought how much you loved music. I turned the radio to polkas as I put up the beans from your dad's garden. I will listen to music and remember you with joy. I love you always. Grandma"

"Happy 31st birthday Phillip!! Thinking about you on your birthday as I head off to bed. My daily devotional's overarching theme for today is "heaven" which is kind of cool. [Jesus said,] "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." -John 14:6."
Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday Dear Phillip! Happy Birthday to you!! I love you, I miss you, and I am always thinking about you! Aunt Wanda"

"Happy 31st Birthday Phillip.
Psalm 90 (91)
"He who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells under the shade of the Almighty…evil will not reach you, harm cannot approach…He has set His angels to guard you and keep you safe…"
"Happy birthday, Phillip! We miss you."
"I remember trying to scare you in the basement and ended up cutting my leg pretty good. You are in my daily prayers.
Eternal Rest Grant unto Phillip O Lord, and may your perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace."
"Today I was at grandma & grandpa's & I had to go into the basement to get something. I couldn't help but smile as I recall all the time we used to spend down there playing games or making haunted houses!! You were always the mastermind behind the clever & "scary" (which normally meant dangerous) ideas. :) Miss you, Phillip, & love you always!!"
"Phillip, we think of often, and remember you fondly. Love, Uncle Johnnie and Aunt Mary"
"Thinking of you - every day.
Remembering the good times - every day.
A part of our lives - every day.
"Its Christmas eve and all company has gone home, but your memory is still with me so I am never alone. we all missed you this Christmas and spoke of you often, remembering past Christmases when you were here. I love you always. Grandma"
"Missing you. Christmas is never the same without you. Love you"
"Every once in a while, I want confirmation that Phillip is okay, although I believe he is with God. Last night Phillip came to me in my dreams. Phillip was like always, only more handsome and happy. Once again, my fears are at rest, and God's peace is here. Merry Christmas Phillip."
"Phillip I think about you almost every day. You were a true friend with too many good qualities to list here. I miss the optimism and hope I always felt when we talked. I wish your dreams would have been realized in this life but I know you are better off than we are now. I will never forget you or your family."
"Philip... I never had the privilege of knowing you, however I met your beautiful mom in Medjugoure almost 2 years ago & came to know YOU through her. Today is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe... Our Lady is the eternal mother of ALL. I know you are resting with her now!! Send your mom & family some special graces... for this holiday season & thank Our Lady for letting me know your MOM"
"I miss you a lot and do not have anybody to talk to about oilfield. i miss you calling me every 15 minutes, when we watched that oilfield show, black gold. I cant call you to talk about it now that its back on t.v.
love you ."
"Missing you this Christmas Season. Grandma"
"My holidays are always hard without Phillip. It seems far to strange and quiet without him. Not that he was loud, it is just imcomplete without him."
Holidays at Grandma's are more quiet without you. It is hard, but we are accepting tragedy and trying to move on. I think that is what you would want us to do. You still come to mind, but with more peace.
Uncle Tommy & Aunt Donna"
"Thinking of you. remembering your last words to me. It was at his home, celebrating an Open House, dressed in a flowered shirt. As we were leaving he gave me a big hug and said " I love you Grandma, take care."
"I REMEMBER AND WILL NEVER FORGET YOU. Grandma"
"Philip, I do not know what to write, but I miss you, all of us miss you very much. I still find it very strange to go to Grandma's and not find you there with your laugh and smile. I know that you are in a better place, and that we will join you in our own time. But for now we are called to be on earth, and you will always be in our memories. One never truly dies while others remember."
""Phillip, thank you for helping me find my way back home. When I was leaving the order I was uncertain where to go. You showed me that my family and my people was where I belonged. Thank you for helping me with my vocation. You prove life is not without a point and everyone has a reason why God made them. Thank you. Stephen."
You made us laugh so often! We miss you...the whole family misses you. How good it will be to be reunited one day. It will be awesome and amazing."
"Phillip we miss you and wish you were still here. One day when we meet again you will be waiting for all of us."
"Gone to soon...Forever in our hearts."
"Phillip you are a wonderfull gift from God. A day doesn't pass that you aren't thought of and remembered. I cherish the time we spent together, whether working or playing. You are missed and loved. I love you and I miss you. James"
"You may be gone but you have never, not for one moment, ever been forgotton. We love and we miss you. James John."
"The other day when I was unpacking boxes t, I found a letter you had written to me many years ago for a class assignment. As I read it, so many memories of you and the other grandkids came to mind. Life is a precious gift that we often take for granted. Your are in my thoughts often - I loved you then and now! I miss you so! Aunt Wanda"
Two years have passed since God took you home, I still look for you to come into the house saying "hi grandma, whatcha doing" I love you. Grandma"
"Phillip, I was honored to be your Godmother and be a part of your life growing up and sharing the many memories these pictures bring. May I always remember your laughter and joy in life - may I remember to laugh at myself ... I miss you ... I love you....Niki"
"Phillip, love you and missing you. Dad"
"Phillip, it has been 2 years already since you died and yet I still expect to hear your voice, hear your laugh, to see you just that one more time. You are always on my mind, always in my heart. I Love you forever and will always miss you. Mom"
