I would like to take this opportunity tonight to give some very well deserved gratitude. First to my amazing parents, I want to thank you for being there for me thru 25 demanding years, and my life. There have been many, many demanding occurrences and you always came thru with flying colors in my book. You’re the best and I love you lots.

Lee, and Dan you guys are the best. Your love, support, care, and concern have never faltered for even an instant. You guys have been my brothers, best friends, cheering section, shoulders to cry on, and so much more. You guys are the best, and I love you

I want to thank Lorrie Klemons, first for being a friend, and thinking of my family as often as she does. I want you to know how much I appreciate your input on the blog and web site. It is a wonderful release for Mom and me. Your input has been invaluable. I want to express my gratitude for making so many delicious, sodium-free Briskets for us to make meals with while traveling.

To the Ohr ha Torah community I can only say Thanks. You have been extremely inquisitive of me and my family, your support can only compare to a wall, and the donations are wonderful. I am thankful for your cards, notes and thoughts and prayers


  1. Hi Philip: It think of you every day and hope we can get together soon and bring Maggie with her magic wand to play. You are an inspiration to me and I just want you to know that. Julie started into her C N A training today. She is beyond tired tonight but sends her love and hugs. I have Maggie on Tues. and Thurs. I will check on one of those days to see if you are up for a visit from Maggie and me. Love, Cindi Powell

  2. Phil, today was so much fun and I only pray that HaShem gives you years and years of fun days! It is easy to be a good friend to such great people. I have a freezer stocked with briskets with your name on them. Let me know when you need more. Keep the faith that all will be well and we will continue to take baby steps towards complete wellness for you! AMEN!
    Love You All,

    Hi Phil,

    You are right, your Mom and Dad are truly amazing people. They make everybody around them happy. I can’t tell you how I miss Randy! She is my role model and I always look up to her.

    Feel better. We are thinking of you.

  6. Hello to the Sperling Family,
    I wish you the very best.
    As we celebrate the holiday of Chanukah, the season in which we witnessed many miracles we will continue to pray and create a vessel for the miracles.
    The help of Hashem comes as quickly as one blinks his eye.
    The power of saying Tehillim is tremendous.
    May G-d hear our prayers and send Philip an immediate and complete recovery.
