Help an Aggie & the Phillips Family

CAN YOU HELP?   Our friends, the Phillips Family, have suffered a great tragedy. Neil Phillips, the fathe
r, was killed last Thursday night in an auto accident in Patterson, CA. Neil leaves behind his loving wife Stacy and 5 children, ages 8 to 25. Their oldest son, Michael, is about to begin his senior year at Texas A&M University. 
Michael will be returning to Texas A&M from California this upcoming weekend, just 2 days after his dad's funeral. Can you help us help him and his family?


He has an apartment, and had planned on coming here a week early to set up his room, find furniture, food, etc: Now that his father is gone, he will be coming back to an empty room with little or no money. His mother asked me if I could help find an air mattress for him to sleep on. 

I told her that we Aggies can do better than that! 

Right!?

I talked to one of my website clients, Jarrod McLeod from the Sleep Station here in C.S., and he is generously donating a brand new bed for Michael! I am going ask if HEB will donate a gift card. Curt and I are purchasing some of his supplies, but can't do it all. So, I'd like to see if I you would be willing to donate money to help to set up his room with bedding, towels, a simple desk and chair, dresser, and end table. Maybe we can even help with some of his books and tuition for his final year at Texas A&M. While his mother works part time for her church, I know she must be very concerned about finances. 

Even just $5 or $10 would help! 

Thank you so much in advance for your prayers and generosity!

Curt and Lauren

~ "Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor. Do not grow slack in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the holy ones, exercise hospitality. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep" Romans 12: 9-13,15 ~

Thank you everyone. We've surpassed our goal, and the donations keep coming in! Here are a few more of the comments left with private donations:

"I worked with Neil on a council and was incredibly shocked and saddened to hear this news. I don't live in Modesto anymore, but my family's prayers go out to the Phillips family. Neil had such a huge impact in several communities and got involved in so many ways. What an amazing example of citizenship and servitude in the name of Christ. "

"Neil was a beautiful man and my thoughts and many prayers are with the Phillip's family."

"My brother was a good friend of Neil's at UCD and I'm also a fellow Aggie. My heart goes out to the Phillips family. "

Many people have left private donations, so their comments do not show on the page. I have removed the names of a few of them to share with you. They are so beautiful:

"He was a loving, Godly man who will be missed more than words can express. He was a true blessing to our parish and a remarkable example of a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. We will miss his infectious smile. Our loss is heaven's gain. May God comfort the family in this trying and tragic time. We love you all, and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. May God abundantly bless you all. sending you love and prayers...."

"Peace be with all of you during this difficult time."

"God Bless the Phillips Family!!! "

"My our gracious God bless the Phillips Family Peace, Love and Prayers"

"Hi! My brother was a very close friend to Neil and Stacy at UCD. I was very saddened to hear this terrible news and really wanted to do something that would be helpful to their family. My heart goes out to Stacy and all of the kids! "


"Hi Lauren. Thank you so much for doing this for the Philips family. Two years ago, we were awakened by a phone call after midnight. My husband's brother-in-law, his sister's husband, was killed in an accident. He had just turned 40 & left behind his wife and two kids, ages 4 & 6.

So many people came forward to help them and the rest of the family, spiritually, emotionally & financially. It was a true blessing."
