Dad, my heart is broken. How are we going to cope without you guiding us through a world that’s not so wonderful anymore. We are glad you are resting now and catching up with your beloved sister, brother, Mum and Dad whom you missed so much. The cats and I are missing your facetime calls and you talking to them. I am devastated that I can’t come home but it is not from the lack of trying, as you always told me “don’t let the buggers beat you” but on this occasion sadly they have. I refuse to say goodbye, so catch you later. All our love Sissy, (Lou Lou), Calum, Rio and Tokyo xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxApril 19, 2021

Dear Heather, Ally, Susanne and Wes, and families… we were so very sorry to hear of your gorgeous Phils passing… a cheeky, happy and generous man to all who knew him. I remember so very fondly our hours together at Kats Corner all those years ago.. so many laughs and perhaps even some mischief whilst working together … and then in later years his visits to tend to our computer.. nothing seemed to ever be too much trouble . Sending you all our sincere sympathy at this difficult time . Annie Joff and family ❤️April 20, 2021

To dear Uncle Phil,April 30, 2021
It was an absolute pleasure to be able to come down for your celebration of life. A life that has been very well lived. You loved deeply your wife, children, their partners and your growing clan of great grandchildren. This is evident by the great love and respect in their words to you as they farewelled you. You were also admired, respected, and loved by your many friends, and peers. I know Mum, your little sister, had to make one of the hardest decisions of her life the day she chose to get on that plane to be with you one last time. We will all miss you but you will never be forgotten. Always in our hearts. Hope you are flying with your Angels now in peace forever.
Donn and Familyxxx
