    Phillip was a great friend , he was one if you didn’t see him for a year he was still there. We had a lot of good times together when i was with the milk coop. We did fish fries ever spring and fall and when Phillip wasn’t busy he would go with us. .It was a lot of work but we had fun doing it.
