My Story

A Legacy of Love Anyone who knew Phillip knew his heart he was full of love and fun sass, such a treasured soul. I like to think that Phillip’s legacy would be just that, one of kindness and unconditional love. I am sure many would agree. I have had the honor to hear just that... from a woman at his calling hours sharing she had come to let us know how much it meant to her the time and attention that Phillip gave her child- a younger FFA student. Love from a beautiful card from one of his friends mother stating how her son is a better person for knowing Phillip... a card from a fellow clinic patient, sent to him by way of his clinic nurses that came and seen him on the floor daily, letting him know how she missed not seeing him and his friends or brother to eavesdrop on their conversations and teasing. To get better so she could see him at clinic again so she could laugh at their antics. His legacy of love --a sweet mother writing in the comments of his obituary about the friendship he had with her daughter and what it meant to them. Nurses who he enjoyed and loved, and loved to tease and having a special relationship with them... nurses and doctors who have also became a big part of our family to this day. We love to visit them and hear stories about Phillip and what he meant to them... and how the corner chair is still considered his. Friends that he would be in constant contact with texting, Always taking the time for them to encourage them and help talk out their problems. A boyfriend that truly loved and cherished their relationship. A brother who was a best friend and confidant loved immensely and a son full of love, support and teasing with a smile full of life. In my heart I also want to share where Phillip got his strength for his legacy. He knew where he was going; we had even talked about it Saturday before he passed. I had gotten to a point where all I could do was pray that Jesus was comforting him and Phillip was. We talked about whom he would meet and the family that would be waiting for him. I want all his friends and family who don’t know their Savior yet to pray on God’s plan for them, know that Jesus died on that cross for all of us to have eternal life... just put your trust in him. know that his blood was shed to save us. If you feel there is something more or you are missing something please reach out and ask. Phillip’s legacy was learned from his God and we all can have that.... I know where Phillip is and where I will be.... A Legacy of Love Anyone who knew Phillip knew his heart he was full of love and fun sass, such a treasured soul.
