    My brother Phil was a kind and wonderful man. He gave me so much to emulate in my life. I always admired his ability to build and repair just about anything. He always did his very best in all of his endeavors. He is a wonderful brother and he made me a better man by his example. We will be together again some day in a better place. Life here on earth is but a moment, eternity is forever. I love my brother Phil.

    Thanks Hugh. Your comments about my dad are spot on. He taught me so many things as I grew up that I am forever in his debt. Kevin Dana

    My brother, Phil, was so much fun to talk to and be with. He always had a hilarious story to tell or experience to share. He was happy and content and that is because of his wonderful wife and amazing children.
