Dear Elizabeth, I’m so sorry to learn of your Father’s passing. Please know that I'm thinking of you and your family. I remember the times your parents came to visit Drs. Howard and Georgeanna and what a gentleman your father was. I know that you will miss him. Nancy💕

PHIL AND I GREW UP TOGETHER SOME TIME BACK. I COULD NOT HAVE HAD A BETTER FRIEND. OVER THE YEARS, AFTER HE NO LONGER LIVED AT VIRGINIA BEACH, WE LOST TOUCH WITH EACH OTHER BUT I THOUGHT OF HIM FREQUENTLY. HE WAS VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE MARRIED CONNIE AND HAVE A WONDERFUL FAMILY. HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL WHO KNEW HIM!

My dear Connie and family, It was with sadness that I learned of Phil's passing. I was sad when you moved away but in retrospect after reading his obituary I understand that it felt 'right' for you to 'go home', I hope it turned out to have been the right decision for you all. Sometimes one cannot 'go home' as it were. That applies to me. I can never go back to England to live. It just would not work and I know it. I have so many wonderful memories of growing up in England (which are kept alive by Masterpiece Theatre!). At the moment I am watching All Creatures Great and Small (for the 4 or 5th time - so many different productions of same. I watch all English Masterpiece series - sometimes just to see the countryside. I have so many wonderful memories of England and Karol (first husband) Karol will always be in my heart. Allan is in Health Care at RWC (soon to be in Assisted Living - step up. He has Parkinson's Disease. Every day is a struggle for him) Memories are what keep us going Connie. Keep yours with Phil in your heart and mind and the love will go on forever! with love, Vikki Marek Young 132 Lancaster Drive, Cottage 615, Irvington, Va. 22480
