A Eulogy for Phil Western

Digital art of Phil and I by Simon Laplante

Phillip Charles Western IV

Aug. 12, 1971 – Feb. 4, 2019

Phil left this mortal coil two years ago today, but his essence continues to influence my heart and soul.

I’m grateful Phil graced my life with his presence and taught me more about the value of love and helped me discover my love values.

Phil taught me how to love unconditionally, with a whole heart at all times. He also showed me how I wanted to be loved and how I deserved to be loved: with the deepest understanding and absolute curiosity, no matter what transpires.

No matter what ugly hardships I shared with him, he never turned away his heart, and he never judged me for my foolishness. I promise to do the same to others as he has done to me: to love unconditionally, with great compassion, authentic consideration, genuine curiosity and the deepest heart-driven understanding.

His heart lives on in mine.
