I had a lot of fun with Phil over the years that I knew him always had a smile he even made me some Irish soda bread so I would know what it was really suppose to taste like , he gave it to me in a brown paper bag an we made a joke that it looked like illegal deal going on.  That was the kind of fun we had . Jude had her hands full but they were the best for each other. You are in my prayers .
