Wayne, So sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. I always talked to him when he came in the restaurant. I didn't know that he had been sick. I will be thinking about you and your family.

Kenneth and I are so sorry about this. Our prayers are with Wayne, LeAnn and all the family. Phillip was a fine man who served Macon County and the surrounding area for many years. He served with sympathy and compassion to all the grieving families. He was so kind and good to us when our daughter died. He came to our home, sat and talked with us to assure us that he would take care of our concerns. RIP, Phillip!!!

Wow! So sorry to hear about my cousin's passing. Greta Kirby just sent me an e-mail. I knew Philip had a bout with cancer some months ago. Philip and I would fight in the grass in Grandma's front yard back in the day in Defeated Creek. He was older and it would take two of us younger cousins to hold him down - but we loved Philip. I didn't see him a lot in the past few years - but darn, I will miss him. He helped me out so much in 1994 for a large Anderson Family Reunion in Red Boiling Springs. What a great guy and he will be missed. Loved him a lot. Sympathy for the entire family!
