From all the cousins in California, Gaylee, Mary, Deanie, Marvin, Kenny, Betty, Darla and Gary we are very sorry to hear of Phil’s passing. Our Father’s, Vernon and Leon Stockton where Phil’s mother Irene’s only brothers. Me and my wife Karen visited Hobart about 5 or so years ago and it was a sort of pilgrimage for me. We had dinner with Phil and Debbie and walked the streets of Hobart. I could feel the memories of my family there. We walked through my Father’s child hood home. Bless you Debbie, you have been to Phil what we all deserve, faithful, loyal and loving. You will see Phil again. We will finally all get to hang out in heaven. ??
