It is with a heavy heart I have to share with you that my Uncle, the creator and passion of Behind the Bombers passed away this morning. No words can describe how I feel right now, it is something I have never felt before.
I can honestly say that my uncle was someone I always looked up to, he truly was my hero. Let me tell you just a little bit about the man that he is. When my wife and I were about to get married, and she needed someone to walk her down the aisle he quickly volunteered to do the honers. Little did he know how honored we both were.
Uncle Phil, I hope you know how much you meant to me as I can not begin to imagine the rest of my days without you in my life. I will treasure our memories forever and never let you out of my heart.
It is thanks to him I am the Yankee fan I am today. I know how much he loved the Yankees and this site. I want you all to know just how much you meant to him. I also want you to be assured that in his honer we will continue to keep BTB alive for a long time to come. It was my honor to redesign this website with him the past few months. If any of you have stories or photos that you would like to share, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put a page together that will due him proud.
I know right now you are up there with Grandpa smiling down on us all. Please give him a big hug for me and I will see you soon, my uncle, my friend…
