     I talked to Phil all the time at Lincoln Park. Where we both walked dogs.  He had the gift of gab,  and was so great to talk to. He looked so young, I could not believe when he told me his age. He spoke about politics ,his son he was so proud of,his wonderful wife and of course Saide his cutie pie dog.  What a great member of our community.

Sorry, comment time is over.
