Uncle Phil, we are sorry to hear of your passing. I remember my first Maine hunting trips with you and staying at grams place in Portage. You laughed when you had to help me gut my first deer kill. I did learn to do it on my own and thought of you each time. You looked pretty sharp in your tux when you did a reading for Terry and I at our wedding. Our ccondolences to Kathy, Joan and Pat.

Peter, Terry, Bri and Taylor Casey
