In Phillip: God Gave us all a Shinning Example of How to live & Be always Pleasant people to be around. Phillip & I Graduated Together along with Rev. King & I . And a host of other that have gone on Home or back to the Master who made us ALL. But, I do Know Phillip was a Trail~Blazer... I work @ Ebensburg County Prision After Phill Left there. He set the stage for other Black~Men to come behind him & plenty of group photos for ppl. Like me to see. He was a well Respected ~Guard / C./Officer. Then he went to State & Finished Out His Niche in life ! Retired but, never Forgotten; for all his Guts & Courage; Then we look 👀 @ His Military Awards~Bronze Star ⭐️ = That’s Bravery & Sh...ould’ve been killer. But, God Said Not Yet ! Aka. Jesus made away out of NO WAY!!! Purple Heart 💜 again wounded. But, Once Again God Said phill, You Gonna be ALRIGHT ! So, When I look to our Local Hero’s . Who have enter the theater of Wars & Made back home. I that God for Men & Woman Who actually Gave there own Blood for us as the Land of the FREE!!! To the Cashaw FAMILIES & All Y’all. He was a Quiet inspired young~Man. I will be Praying 🙏 for y’all Families in the Days Ahead ! We Just know God Has Got Him Working in His Garden/ Above the Sky. High Exaulted & Lifted UP ! So, all We can do is Lift our Savior UP !Read more
