I hope you don't mind that I added to the Condolence page.


Awwww....thank you Bert...that was lovely!

Oh no! :cry: I'm truly sorry for your lost. My prays and thoughts go out to you, family, and friends.


Thank you for the condolences!

A big secret to living well is being able to have moments that become memories with the people you care about, and I'm glad that you and Michael got to enjoy many good times in this hobby that binds us all together here. I'm very sorry for your loss, Phil.


Thank you, Samuel...very well said!

So sorry to hear about your loss Phil.


Thank you for the kind words!

Oh Phil, I am so very sorry to hear this.

I know I'm a ways away, but if there is anything I can do, please let me know.

Thank you, David...SFOG is on the bucket list and now that you are back in Atlanta (I think?), I will let you know when I plan on getting down that way. It would be nice to get together for a day to ride some coasters!

Phil, I am so deeply sorry to hear of Michael's passing. When there was no update for a while on this Adventure thread I began to get worried. Please know my thoughts are with you, your friends, and family. I am happy to say I "knew" Michael through your posts right here on TPR thanks to the various trips you both took. In your many years together you sure packed in a hell of a lot of fun! May those happy memories fuel you through the sadness.

Hugs,
Liz

I only got to meet him briefly, but Michael was pretty special. He had some great stories.

My grandfather died of kidney failure in 2004, and I remember him getting a lot better right before he died. Don't know why that happens sometimes, but I'm glad you were able to take advantage of that time and have one last, really great trip.

Thank you, Andrew...it was a pleasure meeting up with you in Branson and I hope that I can recover those photos so that I can post them. I remember Michael commenting after we left on what a nice man you were and that he (as well as I) really enjoyed having a few beers with you at Branson Landing. :)

Also, thank you Chuck, Andy and Adam...I very much appreciate the condolences.
