My dear brother, Phillip, passed away around 12 a.m. central time. My mother and my sister, Vicki were with him. The doctors tried to resuscitate him, with no success. He fought hard, even under heavy sedation, but his body betrayed his fighting spirit.  

I’m am broken hearted to lose him, but I am also relieved that his struggle to even take a breath is over. He was only 41, but he packed a lot of living into his short years. He is a hero to me, and to many others.

I want to sincerely thank you for all your prayers and words of encouragement over the past 2 months. It has been a long and arduous journey. Thank you for sharing my burden with me. Please continue to pray for my family, especially my parents, and sister in law, Phillip’s wife, Gena. There will surely be some rough days ahead.

I’m struggling to find the words to express how much your love and concern has meant to me, and to my family. Please know that I will treasure it always.

Please do not mention this yet on Facebook, as there are some people there that I need to tell this to myself. Thank you for keeping this here on Fab40.

In Deep Gratitude,
