  7. Marilynn and Family,
    We are so sorry for your loss, and are keeping you all in our thoughts during this difficult time. Although I didn’t have the chance to talk to Phil very often, he was always quick to wave and say hello as I was leaving or coming home. Jerad chatted with Phil once in a while when they were both outside doing yardwork and I know Jerad enjoyed the conversations they had. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help around the house or yard.

  10. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of grief. He was known as Grandpa to the softball family! He was there supporting and cheering on the girls. He was always concerned about Samantha after we found out what was wrong with her back. May you feel God’s comfort and strength.

    I am so, so sorry for your loss. I have wonderful memories of seeing grandpa at practically all of our games. How he loved to watch all of the girls play, not just Caitie. He will always hold the spot at the backstop…just behind the ump 🙂 Prayers to you all for comfort and peace.
