Today I thank Dad he gave me life and he gave me reasons to live

What I learned from Dad has brought me to places I never knew I could reach. He gave me the belief that given the desire and the willingness I can achieve almost anything. Dad believed that in his heart and it got into my heart. I do not live my life as my dad envisioned but I do live my life by this guiding principle. We do not know how far we can go. So keep working at what you want

Tuchy

Ever grateful Son of Phil

Some words from the book ‘Phil In His Own Words”

On life

2) “Be a friend to everybody; everybody needs a friend.” Dad

3) “Sometimes you have to kiss their behind.” Dad

4) “What you worry about most never comes true.” Dad

5) “Sometimes you have to take their shit.” Dad

6) Watch the ones that know.” Dad

7) "Carl, you gotta keep looking for ways to do a better job."Dad was great at this and we became very good at discovering better and faster ways of working. Whether it was cutting a lawn, building a wall, or cleaning up, there always was a more effective way of doing the job that enabled you to make more money by being more efficient.
