  1. candleMr. Phil – how I miss your smile and your chuckle. I will always be grateful for your love of my Mother, for being her partner in life and your adventures together. You brought a richness to our family and you will always live in my heart.

  2. Dearest Uncle Phil, Im going to miss the talks we had after I got out of work… I’m grateful I had those moments with you… You were my uncle in childhood and as I got older you are my friend…

  3. candleDear Phil, it is so sad to think you are no longer with us. Thank you for being a wonderful partner to Penny for so many years. Thank you for the many spirited discussions you and I had. Thank you for all the good deeds you did in this world.

    Even if we rarely agreed on how to see the world we were always able to see each other! I will remember you fondly and will miss you dearly! May your unwavering faith carry you to eternal life! And may God’s love embrace and keep you forever!

  4. candleDear Mr. Phil,
    May you find eternal peace and joy with your Father in heaven. Your faithfulness and devotion to God through how you lived your life is a wonderful example to our family. The love that you and Penny shared was a joy to experience. May you rest in God’s blissful peace.

  5. Phil,
    I hope you are resting peacefully. I am forever grateful that you brought joy to my mother and my family through many years until the end. Your faith and wisdom will not be forgotten and remain appreciated. I miss you already and am fortunate you were part of my life.

  6. It was a treasure to know you and a comfort that you brought to my mother and my family. A blessing for my children to see and know others who lived a full life with T1D. Your constant care and companionship will be missed. Your love and care made a difference.

  7. candleWe will always remember Phil as one who was so full of faith. Our girls thought of him like a grandfather, and he treated them so kindly. While he was with our mother/grandmother, we witnessed his love for her too. We are so grateful they had so much time together. Mr. Phil, our hearts ache and we will miss seeing you in person. We know you will always be with us in spirit as you now walk with our Lord.

  8. I had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Kulina through his years of involvement with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). He and I shared many moments of laughter, conversations and times of prayer over the phone. We also shared several great encounters at BGEA outreach events. He loved Jesus and was passionate about the Gospel. I will miss hearing is kind and warm voice. He was a constant source of encouragement. I am blessed to have known him during the final years of his journey. Now he is in the presence of his beloved Jesus. Philip believed, with all his heart, in the words of Jesus when He said, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;” So even though I mourn with you this day, I also rejoice in knowing that one day, I too will see Jesus and my dear friend and brother – Philip. Whomever reads this note should feel free to contact me if you wish to learn more about Philip’s faith in Jesus or if you wish to pray with someone. It would be my pleasure to be of service to you. Blessings!
