  3. I am so very sad to hear of Phil’s passing. He always was such a friendly guy. I have fond memories of our visits( my brother Ken and I) to the farm with my mom, Betty Moskal. We always enjoyed seeing all the cows and dogs and cats, and the huge garden. We enjoyed visiting Aunt Nellie, Phil and Cindy and the kids as well as Olga and her family. My mom used to love to visit when she was able to get around. Perhaps she and Phil will be able to reminisce up in heaven. When my husband, Bob, and I got married, we had Nicole and Jimmy as the flower girl and ring bearer in our wedding. They were so cute!!! We send our deepest condolences to the family. We now live in Albuquerque, New Mexico so cannot attend the celebration of life. We will keep you all in prayer. ???❤️❤️❤️

  5. My deepest sympathies to Cindy and the entire family over your loss of Philip. He was a kind man and friendly to me every time I visited when I was a child with my sister, Karen; with my children when they were young, and with my mom when she was elderly. Philip always enjoyed the hard working farm life and shared his love of farming with us. My mom, Betty Moskal, had many memories of her childhood growing up on that farm that she shared with me. It gave me a deeper appreciation for the hard working farmers. I will not be able to attend the service but you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Phil will be missed but not forgotten.
