    Phillip will always hold a special place in our hearts. We had lots of laughs when he worked on our farm. My girls loved to hang out with him and Phillip was always willing to play with them and so kind. Prays to all his friends and family for comfort and ease of pain to everyone’s broken heart.

    Words cannot express how much my family and I are going to miss Phillip (AKA Homer to us); he was a part of our family and was an amazing friend.He was like an uncle to Maddie and Brinley, they looked forward to every visit with him. My heart is broken to have lost such an amazing friend; most all of my childhood and a lot of adult memories have Homer in them. He is going to be missed so much. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and please let me know if you need anything.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort in Jesus words at John 5:28,29. There Jesus promised a resurrection of our loved ones, saying that the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. These resurrected ones will inherit the earth, as Jesus spoke about in Matthew chapter 5. Then, under the rule of God’s Kingdom, they will enjoy life the way God originally intended, in perfect health with no sorrow, pain or death. (Psalms 37:29. Isaiah 33:24. Revelation 21:4). What a wonderful time that will be! If you would like to learn more about this hope, please visit Please accept my condolences.
