Oh Dear Maria, I have just read of Phillip’s passing. There are no words to say that I understand how you feel, I know this is a huge loss for you.
Who will you banter back and forth with. I am so grateful for the lamb and red cabbage lunches we had together and the wine we drank. For the political discussion we had. Such fun for me and hopefully for both of you as well. I am so sorry for your loss Marie. I pray that you are surrounded by your family and that you are loving and caring for each other now and always.
God Bless.

Tante Lenchen,Denise,Sylvie:
Know that your husband, dad, and my Onkel Philipp will be forever missed, but not forgotten. The memories of the many summers I spent living at the old farm as a little kid will always be fresh in my mind. Learning hard work ethics from Onkel Philipp helped me in part be who I am today. His sense of humor and clowning around always made the work seem like fun and make the triple yoke eggs taste so much better in the morning. During our last phone conversation we had a good laugh about my first time driving the old tractor along with a few of the pranks he pulled on me. You will be missed, rest in peace Onkel Philipp you are now pain free. Love Freddy
