I met Phil playing online poker. We spent many hours laughing and chatting. I grew very close to him and his wife. I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person. He was one of the very few people I could count on during my Katina ordeal. Always had words of wisdom if I found myself troubled. For the past 7 years he was one of my best friends. He taught me, you don't have to meet someone in person to have a true friend. Some people can touch your heart without ever knowing them in person. I am blessed to have known him at all. It makes me smile to imagine him on a Harley in heaven, hair blowing in the wind. You'll be deeply missed Ezrider. Lara Sword, February 8, 2011 PHIL HAD THE BIGGEST HEART POSSIBLE.
