it is rare that an individual is born with wisdom, but Phil was always wise even as a teenager. Now wisdom is often subjective and often is a matter of opinion, however I believe that an accurate definition will be, someone who listens to people who are experienced, and instead of dismiising thier opinions as preaching, learns from it. This young man did not take experiences lightly, he learned from others, and he followed his own moral compass, that was often correct. I would like to wish, one of the youngest, wisest souls I ever met a happy birthday, happy birthday phil,

Over four years now and I have never written on this site. Ofcourse you know; however, I think about you and talk to you all the time. I graduate tomorrow, bro. I know you have been there with me every day through the last six weeks. You were quite the motivation to push your ol' sis through, boy have tables turned! Thanks for still being there for me, you are truley not gone. I love you and miss you like crazy. I wish I could see you tomorrow, but I know you will be standing right by my side. Stand guard at those pearly gates, doing what you do best, protect in peace. **"You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger, you gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together"**

Deputy Rodriguez, I didn't know about you until today. I didn't know that you were so closely related to my agency. I have sat here for almost an hour and read each of your reflections. I have learned that although I didn't get to meet you I would have liked you. I know this because of what others have written about you. To your family, friends and fellow deputies, he will live on in your hearts until you get to reunite with him one day. Rest in peace, Brother.

Phil, I can say, as time has passed, it does not get easier to accept the loss of such a wonderful Officer. The day of your accident will long endure in my mind and memory. I will soon retire after 20 years and there are alot of memories that will go with me. You, P-Rod, I will always remember and can still hear your voice on the radio. 2P35, 2P35. Continue to rest confortably, and may your spirit always be with your family and fellow Officers.

I have wanted to write to you for so long but every time I try, I can't stop crying. The last time I saw you was just 3 weeks before you were gone. I missed your phone call that day and it will haunt me forever. Everything has changed so much since you've been gone. I miss you so much. I miss your smile, your sense of humor, your positive energy, your enthusiasm; I miss you moving your ears while you were pretending to fly like Dumbo. Dynamic is the one word I can use to describe your spirit.
I'm worried about dad bro. I've been trying to find him for so long and I can't. Please help guide me to find him. I miss him and want him around so much.
You are my idol and my inspiration. I hope to become at least half the wonderful person you've always been. I love you, I miss you, and you owe me a Cowboy Cha Cha.I am proud and honored to have you as my brother.

Well my friend, I think of you often. I still miss you.
I find it hard to believe it's been almost 3 years since your EOW.
I've had to spend a lot of time out in Mohave Valley lately, and I see your fellow officers and friends in their sheriff vehicles going buy and I just smile knowing you're looking down watching over them.
Anyway Philip, I just wanted to say hi. Please watch over all of us, God knows we need all the help we can get.
I miss you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one second anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.
Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.
Rest In Peace.

I teach a class every quarter to a different set of 7th grade students about officers that have given their lives in the line of duty. I always end with your memorial page. Every time I speak of you to a class I do it with tears and a smile. Your academy class will always have a special place in their hearts for you. I miss you and think of you often. I share your sense of humor, determination and sacrifice with these kids so you are not forgotten. Thank you for watching over us.

I remember having the pleasure of being a part of training your academy class at CARLOTA, and was there at your graduation. You showed a lot of heart, humor, determination and promise. There was no doubt that, even though you were one of the younger ones in your class, you had gained everyone's respect and admiration.
Brother, you were way too young to go. May God bless you and relieve the anguish of your loved ones. We will take the fight from here.....

It's hard to come here... and see your picture here with all of these other fine officers who all paid the ultimate sacrifice. Know that you are missed and loved by all who knew you. I heard you are up there on God's Department... and still patrolling the streets and protecting us you left behind but not alone. I know you were there one Sunday morning looking after me and keeping me from a really bad accident. Thanks for watching over all of us...and keeping us safe. Love Always Aunt Melody
