I am so sorry for everyone's loss. Phil's passing will leave a giant hole in our hearts.
He is truly one of the best human being's ever.
He is kind and patient and caring.
He is funny and quirky and shy!
He was the best Designer. He designed from his gut.
He enjoyed his work, enjoyed making people happy, and loved Ice cream cake!
He was my right hand, and a great colleague and communicator and I will forever miss him .
