It is very sad about Philip. He was one of the first people I met when I came to Stokes County. He always shared stories about my husband growing up. He was one of the only people I knew that no matter how bad it was he always had a smile to share! I sure am going to miss those smiles and his stories. May he have found peace. Rest in peace my friend, you will be missed!!
I was so sorry to hear of Philip"s death. May God be with all of you at this time. George Hairston

My family and I are truly saddened by Philip's death. He was a very dear friend of the family for many years. We can all remember the very good times that we had together. I just hope and pray that the family is alright and that Philip found the peace he was so desperately looking for. He will be missed by everyone, but especially by my family. We love you Philip and hope you found peace and tranquility.
