Throughout Philip’s journey, the outpouring of love and support he and his family received is beyond belief. Your endless prayers, encouraging words, visits and well wishes kept him motivated and helped him fight until his very last breath. Watching his closest friends, colleagues, teammates, and fellow Junkanooers mobilize and run to his aid was remarkable. He knew that he was well-loved and surrounded. The family could never thank you all enough for giving Philip his roses while he was still here to smell them.
We want to extend a special thank you to Philip’s medical team, Dr. Wesley Francis, Dr. Gemma Rolle, Dr. Adrian Cargill, MBBS, M.S, the Oncology department, and Ingrid Foster of Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH), the medical staff at Cleveland Clinic Hospital especially, Dr. Nagaragan, and the Accident and Emergency team at the University of Miami Hospital.
To Philip’s pastoral team, Pastors Derek Benjamin, and Matthew Sweeting of New Providence Community Church (NPCC), Pastor Kevin Armbrister of Glad Tidings Tabernacle, Cannon Atma Budhu of The Anglican Church of The Epiphany, and Father Topping of St. James Anglican Church, thank you for keeping Philip covered. To Philip’s prayer warriors, Audette Shepherd, Rebecca Stewart, Alma Ferguson, Deborah Mackey, and the members of The Church of the Epiphany, especially the ACW members, thank you.
We are thankful and filled with gratitude for Philip and Gari’s colleagues at the Ministry of Works and HLB Galanis & Co. for the support and compassion you have shown throughout this journey. To the Meridian School, thank you for wrapping your arms around Liam and rallying behind our family throughout Philip’s fight.
To Philip’s beloved Valley Boys, Jets, Wildcats, and the St. John’s College graduating class of 1997, he loved you all to pieces, and he knew that you loved him. You all became family many years ago, and we are forever grateful for how you showed up for Philip.
To those that contributed to Philip’s fundraisers, we cannot thank you enough. The GoFundMe campaign, Facebook fundraiser, Da Spot Grill’s wing event, Meridian’s T-shirt day, NPCC’s Helner’s Small Group (Myrna) bake sale were all massive successes because of you and your support.
There are a few extraordinary people that we must specially mention. Racquel and Garvin, you jumped into action and never left Philip’s side. Monty and Sarah, you went above and beyond to create a comfortable home for Philip during his stay in Florida. Ronnie, from the moment Phil received his diagnosis in 2019, you stepped in and cared for him as if he was your own. To Philip’s in-laws, Gary, and Cleopatra Christie, he expressed gratitude for you two every day. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.
Finally, to Philip’s dream team of caretakers, Gari, Ronnie, LaRoma, Cleo, Rojarra, Jaime, Lucy, and Latoya, you dedicated every moment of the last 18 months to help Philip fight. You did all you could, you did well, and now it is time to take care of each other.
Numerous others have supported Philip in one way or another. Rest assured that we see you; we recognize you, and from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
May His Soul Rest in Peace!
