In Memorium: Phil Koehler

A good friend, Phil passed away a week ago today.  It’s going to take a while to process it both the suddenness and pointlessness of the death of such a young person.  While I will always be at a loss to express the tragedy, what makes this even difficult is how much less likely I think this will be in only a couple years.

Phil was a good friend, who would always tell you how it is, and never be pushy about it.  While I really only knew him professionally, he always gave me any support I needed or asked for.  I can only lay it in the hands of my savior that HE is the hope to come.
