Uncle Philly was a wonderful person who enjoyed being with family. He was a big people person and he put a smile on anyone's face. I am happy that Uncle Philly got to meet Josh, who is the love of my life. Josh and I will miss him.

Uncle Philly will always be in our hearts. I have such wonderful memories of you. The way you would burst out singing during family gatherings. You had such a great voice! You were also a great dancer and could keep any party going. You were a gentle, kind and caring man. You are now reunited with my Grandmother and family in heaven. Rest in peace Uncle Philly. Love you always, Peter.

Dear Uncle Philly,
i loved the stories you shared about being a hair colorist on the most affluent woman in Manhattan NY. You were very talented and they would come from all over the city to get their favorite color dyed by the expert. You loved to sing and dance like the rest of your siblings. You were born into a loving and happy family. You were handsome and stylish. You had a unique sense of humor. You took great care of your parents. The immediate family is mostly with you in heaven. I know God called you home because you were missed by them. Now you will be missed by us .
tell my mother i love her and until we meet again my God keep you in his care.

Great memories, Angela! Do you know who the guinea pig was for his coloring in the beginning? it was Aunt Josie! He would try out all the different hair colors on her, lol! I, also, enjoyed his stories and slightly sarcastic sense of humor. he was very entertaining! I would love it when he just burst into song, out of nowhere. He liked to entertain, and was very good at it. Who could forget him with the napkin at all of the affairs where the tarantella was played? I, actually, recorded him at some of the parties that I had, and am so glad that I have it, so I can always listen to him whenever I want. You always knew that he was happy to be in your presence, and made you feel special. I will really miss him, but i know that he is up in heaven, reunited with his and our loved ones, and is having a homecoming celebration. Love always, Laurie Anne
