I am so sorry to read of the passing of a long time acquaintance and friend, Mr. Harry Phillips. I had the honor of being his and Dean's Pastor many years ago. I was blessed by the association I had with them. Harry was a very good Christian gentleman, and will be missed by his family and friends. My condolences go to all of the Phillips' family. God bless you in this hour of sorrow.

Heaven has gained a sweet soul in the arrival of my Uncle Harry. Many other loved are there too, making me want to go as well! One day, all of us who love The Lord will be there too. Thank-you Jesus for taking years of pain away from our kind Uncle Harry! Please help his precious wife and others who will miss him so badly! Thank-you for allowing us to know him and to love him!

Aunt Dean and family, I have so many memories of Uncle Harry. I mostly remember riding on the back of a pony for the first time when I was 'wee' with him at my side with a big smile on his face. I felt safe and filled with joy of this new experience. I will always remember his laugh and smile. I wish I could be there tomorrow.

Uncle Harry was a very special man. He always had a smile on his face even through his pain. He never judged anyone and accepted you for who you are. Say hi to my Mom and Dad in heaven.

Dean and family, words cam't explain how much Harry meant to us in many ways-through friend, neighbor, church. He was a lot of fun to be around and we loved living next door to you all at Walker. We always looked forward to you and Harry bringing your famous candy plate over at Christmas. I still make reese balls today because of you. Those were special times. I know you will depend on the Lord for peace and comfort. Love you.
