    Phil was one of the best workers and best people that I have had the pleasure to know in my many years at Papa Johns. He wore the biggest smile on his face was so polite and humble and had a laugh so big you would come from two rooms over to find out what was so funny. He will be missed dearly by all that knew him and my thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and friends.

    I’m so lost without you here. The comfort, peace and love that I had holding you the day you were born, to our last hug, not knowing that it would be our last. I believed there would be “time” to make things right with you. There is no time. Time is never on our side. Even after 375 days, it hasn’t gotten better, easier, or even tolerable. It’s gotten harder. I do cry less and smile more with every memory I have of you, but my heart aches even more as the days go by. I often wonder if there really is a heaven or a God. I believe I deserve to continue to ache and miss you for failing you as a mom. This pain I carry, I deserve to carry for not being what you needed and what I should have been. I’m so ready to see you Phillip!
