    Phil, I am very sorry to hear of Winnie’s passing. She was a wonderful woman, but I guess I don’t have to tell you that. Please accept my deepest sympathy you two have been through a rough life but your love kept the two of you strong. The death of a child seperates many couples, it only made the two of you stronger, it’s a credit to the two of you. My thoughts are with you, you are a wonderful man and husband, most of us just wish for a husband like you. You were a lucky man to have a wife like Winnie but most woman would be happy to have a loving husband like you. My best wishes to you in the furture. Judi Ash Urda
