 Phillip, I thought there would be time to catch up and get back with you. This reunion is the first time I heard about your passing. Thanks guy for the sharing. It felt great to be in Amarillo when it was still an oil town surrounded by huge ranches. Sir, you had class when some of the others flashing money just didn't have any decency whatsoever. Your kindness will be forever appreciated.

That orange Porshe 911 in the 9th grade will be a fond memory. Funny, too. We pronounced it "porch".

I rode to school my Senior year with Philip in his 1970 Buick Gran Sport. It had a 455 engine and it would fly. We lived in the same neighborhood and carpooled. I too remember his orange Porsche 911 and his green one too. 

I had always admired Philip. He was one of the really cool kids. And one of the tough guys. But he was also a really decent person who never put people down.

I left Amarillo after high school and never came back to the Panhandle. I lost touch with everyone. I just found out that Philip had died. So shocked and sorry to hear this sad news.

I knew he was a person who was going places. I hope he had a good life.
