Prayers for Phillip

In my last blog post I wrote about how I would be having Thanksgiving alone, while Phillip would be going down to visit with his family for a few days….

Unfortunately, Phillip’s father passed away this morning, so his trip to see his family this holiday won’t be for the reasons anyone had expected.

I am here with him, helping in anyway I can. I felt so much sadness for my friend as he clutched my hand, then pulled me towards him just so he could hold someone as he wept.

If you could, please say a prayer for Phillip. Thanksgiving will probably be forgotten this year. There are far too many other things to think about….


  1. I am so sorry Phillip lost his father. He is very fortunate to have you to be there for him and with him during this difficult time I will keep Phillip in my prayers āœļø and thoughts.

  2. Gregory; You both have been in my thoughts and prayers. Tell Phillip many prayers and thoughts of love are being sent your way from Arizona and across the United States and the World. Gregory you have touched the lives of thousands and now we all are reaching out to Phillip and his family and You during this difficult time. Hugs and kisses from Eloy AZ Much love and many Rosaries and tears…Tobias RW Brown…

  3. My sincere condolences to Phillip. I know the pain of losing a parent, my father has been gone 31 years and my mother 16. It’s something you eventually learn to accept, but I don’t think you ever “get over” the loss. I will keep Phillip and his family as well as you in my prayers.

  4. I am so very sorry for this unexpected turn. Phillip and his family and you as well, will be in my prayers and my heart. When I was a teenager, my mother passed just before Thanksgiving and it was so hard for the next few months.

  5. I have been where you are. Today is the 4-year anniversary of my father-in-law’s death. The day before Thanksgiving. My mother-in-law died 5 days later. It’s hitting my husband hard this year for some reason. You all have my condolences.
