  8. I still recall standing in the kitchen at mum’s in my school uniform doing the dishes with Phil being part of the family – that was around 48 years ago. We were family – standing by you through divorce and going to your wedding with Donna. I missed the long conversations we had – just talking while you had a few drinks before heading home. They were good times and so long ago. Just something I never forgot. You moved on with your family and ironically moved to Mildura where your ex lives. I have no idea if your paths ever crossed. I finally made plans – after all these years to visit Mildura and was hoping to catch up with you and Donna – then heard the news.
    Phil – you were such a fighter – battling with ill health for a number of years but I remember the talented man – building a luxurious home starting with a shed. Moving to country Victoria with nothing. Friends who supported you through ventures including breeding birds and your love of race hounds. I remember the smokehouse you made to help feed the family with pork. Donna buying palm trees to plant down the driveway when you had nothing. You always made me feel welcome and treated me like family.
    My only regret is that I never got the chance to catch up one more time. I really missed those chats where you were so philosophical and changed the world.
    I’m sorry you lost your battle. I know your family was everything to you and my deepest condolences go out to them. The van de Beek’s were always the extended family. We will miss you.
    RIP Phil 🕊️🙏
