  1. Phil was an amazing neighbor, I will miss taking him meals with an hour long conversation & having him over for summer grill outs. He always brought his amazing homemade wine he made from his grape vines, along with the wine there was always a story about his lawn, fruit trees, fish, you name it he knew a lot! Phil was one of a kind neighbor he will definitely be missed! Until we meet again, The Lorenzen’s
