My wife Shawna and I are on the roof with Phil in these videos. We'll never forget our time spent with him. How could you?! He was unique, animated, creative, thoughtful, loving, caring, sensitive, insightful and unshakably, uncompromisingly himself. He is the kind of artist that naturally inspires other artists and others to be artists. He is also the kind of artist that others live vicariously through. I miss him. I'll miss him every time I walk into Peet's before work and don't see him sitting at the corner table with a group of people talking about anything and everything all at once. If there is anyone I've known who would be inexhaustibly exuberant in experiencing the great mystery of what comes after, it's Phil. Heaven should make a reality that follows him, chronicling his reactions!

We miss you Phil.
