    We so looked forward to our monthly game nights and enjoyed the company of both Phil and Darlene. We hope to continue our game nights with Darlene, as we know Phil would want that. Phil was a great example of loyalty, a hard worker, faithful to his religious beliefs and just an all around great guy. Phil and Darlene were great examples of love and respect in marriage. Phil will never be forgotten, we know we will see his smile again, until then—we love you Phil and will miss you! It just won’t be the same. In the meantime, many will be taking care of your sweet wife, Darlene. Thanks for being you.
