Phil,I'll never forget the the time you and I we sitting on the barn hill when a storm came thru and in front of the storm we thought it was a trash bag flying by but when it came close we saw that it was 2 big birds locked together, spinning in the air. This is called the eagle "death roll", wow what a sight we saw. Phil, you would help us do anything. We recall fondly hours spent under our big shade tree or floating on noodles in Bassett Lake or just being together shooting the breeze and having a visit in the warmth of your wood stove. We will always love you and never forget you.

So much love you gave & others have to you. Your loving sister-in-law Joanie & Mike Ryon

So many happy memories of our times together as family but the best memories are as friends - then now and forever - another chunk of my heart is gone - happy that you are now with so many loved ones but so very sad you are not still with us here.
