PHIL MESNEY So young, so brave, how can it be There was so much of life to see A gentle man in every way Why can't he have another day A caring heart a loving smile If only he could stay awhile A shining light adored by all Oh what we'd give for him to call A modest man who'd done so well And yet our Phil would never tell A model role to those so young He touched the hearts of every one He'd praise a child as if his own Oh how we'd love to bring him home A heart of gold, a soul so free How sorely missed our Phil will be And though it hurts to think he's gone Our love for Phil goes on and on. Remembering and thinking of you as always on your special leap year Birthday tomorrow. All our love forever. With love from your heartbroken family.
