My cousin Phil was a gentle soul. He will be remembered for some of the silliest things he did when we were kids. I loved him. His greatest asset in life was the bond he had with my cousin, his sister, Dolores, who stepped up to the plate, with heart and love, not just a sense of responsibility. God bless you, Phillip. I'm sure your parents and Robert were there waiting for you in heaven. Love, Gail Marie Archer Spena aka Cous.
