  10. Dear Aunty Merle, Uncle Garry, Jo, Shelby, Rory and Trent,

    When I was little, I thought Phil was the coolest dude I knew. With his jacket covered in punk rock badges. He gave me his sex pistols pin, so cool! When he showed me his gold fish, he convinced they could talk. Funny bugger, I was only 4 at the time.
    Even though we grew up in different states, when we got together it was like we were never apart. He was always so positive and what a laugh! I will miss that loud boisterous laugh.
    We love you Cuz.
    Ray, Leanne, Rhys, Bryn and Myf.
