  1. Rest in peace, Phil. No more suffering, no more pain. No more disappointment or frustration that you couldn’t do the things that you wanted to, or felt you needed to do. Behind that gruff exterior, your family and friends knew that there was a kind, loving man. You did your best at all that you tried, no one could ask for more.
    You will be missed.

    Carl Cannavo
  2. My heartfelt sympathy to the Ashmore family. God knows the sorrow you’re feeling as you mourn your loved one. May the God of all comfort be with you at this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

  3. TO PAT, and family ou’d Philip. I am sorry for your loss, but God was merciful and he’s at peace. Find comfort in his memory and the life he had with you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
