Its crazy how things happened. You'll always be in my memory..and in my heart. You were as close as a lil brother could be and i appreciate all the great times we spent together. I still remember meeting you when you were 15. Damn I'll never forget that day. Who knew I'd still be apart of your life 7 years later. It's crazy how things work out..but i know one thing is for sure you always brought a smile to my face and there were those times when you'd get on my nerves but ultimately i wouldn't change the moments i had with you for all the money in the world. I love you Greg till we meet again. Rest in Paradise

Prayers of comfort go out to the family, my heart hurts for you and I mourn along with you. My family went through a senseless act of violence just a month ago. This is the worse possible way to lose a loved one. God bless and hold you close during this tragic time.

As I scanned the Tracy Press this morning, I ran across Phillips picture. My first thought was

" what a beautiful smile this young man has." I then realized the young man had passed during a sensless act of violence. My prayers are with Phillips father, mother, sisters, daughter, and those lives Phillip touched. I did not know you Phillip, but his smile touched me this morning. I too have lost a sister in a violent act, so I understand a very small amount of what your family is and will experience in the days to come. Know this, God is with you. Although it seems He is far away, God and his band of angels are there for you. I wish I would have had the opportunity to meet Phillip, his smile is contagious and has brought warmth and joy to my life this morning.
