Philip is resting today. Yesterday was exhausting for us all. He was very clear of mind and able to speak very softly.  The morning was sad for him as he expressed his sadness about leaving. Lee arrived and Phil was able to express his concerns and asked Lee to watch out for us, particularly me. We all listened carefully, expressed our deep love to each other and explained that we would be very sad without him, but that we would be fine. We discussed the things that need to be taken care of such as Ditto. The afternoon was filled with remembrances and he joined us in some songs that he always liked to sing. He was able to talk to each of us alone, and get everything said he wanted to. Now he says he is ready to go. This morning we are at his bedside.
