    He was and always will be the love of my life….NO ONE knows why he drifted off the road. People assume they know what happened but they dont know.

    Lynn I’m so sorry for the loss. My prayers go out to you and your family in ur time of need. Phil was a great guy I went to school with him. I also use to live next door to him. He will be missed.

    WOW. THOSE KIDS MUST REALLY BE SOMETHING SPECIAL IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE THEIR DAD’S CAR FROM THE TWISTED METAL WRECKAGE I SAW IN THE VIDEO. I REALLY DON’T THINK PUNCHING A CAMERAMAN WOULD HAVE HELPED THE SITUATION ANY. I’M SURE HE WASN’T THE ONE WHO DECIDED TO AIR THE FOOTAGE WHEN WNEP DID. SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF YOUR NEPHEW. TRY TO FOCUS ON HIS KIDS. OH, AND TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS A REAL PAIN TO READ, DON’T YOU AGREE?
