I only have a picture now,
A frozen piece of time,
To remind me of how it was,
When you were here, and mine.

I see your smiling eyes,
Each morning when I wake,
I talk to you, and place a kiss,
Upon your lovely face.

How much I miss you being here,
I really can not say,
The ache is deep inside my heart,
And never goes away.

I hear it mentioned often,
That time will heal the pain,
But if I'm being honest,
I hope it will remain.

I need to feel you constantly,
To get me through the day,
I loved you so very much,
Why did you go away?

The angels came and took you,
That really wasn't fair,
They took my one and only Son,
My future life. My heir.

If only they had asked me,
If I would take your place,
I would have done so willingly,
Leaving you this world to grace.

You should have had so many years,
To watch your life unfold,
And in the mist of this,
Watch me, your Mum grow old!

I hope your watching from above,
At the daily tasks I do,
And let there be no doubt at all,
I really do love you.

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.

Happy birthday baby! We sure do miss you. I can still feel you watching down on us. Love and miss you more than you know.

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.

Hi Philip,
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.
