  4. Philip was an inspiring, intelligent and generous man. We have lost him too soon and I commit to carrying his encouragements and insights forward with the tender diligence he made present for me. Philip made a strong impression in my life when I needed it the most. I will think of him often.
    I send gratitude and deep sympathies to his family.
    With love,
