Life is Precious


My daughter was killed this weekend.  Tell those you love that you are there for them.  You never know when its that time.  But, I have faith, and though Even through this loss I’m sustained knowing,  “Oh, Death Where is your Sting!”  She is in the next world and is finding eternity has better room service.

Just remember that it is love that matters — so please tell those you love that you do love, in word and in deed.  Before they depart, before you can no longer hold their hand.

    I am at a loss of words, yet need to respond.

    There cannot be a more painful time imposed on the soul than suddenly, unexpectedly, finding one’s offspring to pass on before that parents passing, and without doubt that reality, must be THE supreme test of character of which I would never, ever, want to face. My fear, is the charm and vitality of yours that I’ve grown fond of — part of you, from her death, must have perished as well. You are in a different place now, and though I have only known you a short time, and never met your daughter, my heart goes out to you and yours for your loss.

    The ATLC lab is near complete absent of students, less a few unfamilar students fumbling around. Your office is no longer an office, but a silent space with none of that attention, humor and candor to be found. You are missed. At this time I have suspended any future plans of attending this lab. As much in no mood to pst article. I would not be surprised if your leave becomes permanent. That said, I would be happy of your return. You are invited to talk or write personally to me at whenever time you find appropriate — and I am sure a host of other students feel the same.

    Phil, initially after reading about your daughter Corban being involved in this tragic event I prayed to Almighty God for her recovery and I privately paid my respects to you and your family. Then the following day I found out that Corban had passed into the realm of our Heavenly Father. My immediate impulse was to reach out to you and your family in a consoling manner. Since you were not physically available I had to offer you my condolences on your Facebook Wall. Phillip White, although your absence is very prominent, grieve as much as you want, as long as you want and only as you know how. I pray that our Merciful God will give you the strength to manifest the tenacity and perseverance within you to continue to reach for the stars. May God bless you and your family.
    Mon ami Phil, after reading the opinions expressed on this website, I thought it would only be fitting for me to also express mine. I want the world to know that I greatly admire and respect you. In your absence, I give you my solemn word that I will continue to utilize your computer room and while I am there I will take good care of your domain. People say you will not rebound from this event but I know different. In the short time that I have known you, I have intuitively gauged your mettle. You are not a quitter nor are you a whiner. Instead, you are a fighter, a caretaker, a giver, a walking encyclopedia of facts and a wizard on the various computer programs. These are all admirable positive qualities. With regard to the resignation of your editor, I will gladly take over his responsibilities. Again, in your absence I will not idly stand by and watch all that you have built disintegrate. I witnessed all the energy you expended just to get this project off the ground. Also the patience you exhibited while designing the heading and background on this website.

    In conclusion Phil, contrary to what has been posted, there are no fumbling students in you lab room because you have taught us how to help each other, that is, if someone is in need of help, we do our best to assist. If they are unfamiliar, it is only because each quarter there is always an influx of new students. With regard to the lab being near empty, WELL….YEAH!!! Just maybe it is because it is the start of a new quarter. Since I am a math major, I ask anyone this question. What is the probability that the lab will be near empty around mid-term time or finals time????????
    Jaillissent mon bon ami Phillip, il est l’heure pour que je dise au revoir pour maintenant. J’attends impatiemment votre de retour mais seulement retourne quand vous pensez que le temps est exact. En attendant je te donne ma promesse que votre laboratoire d’ordinateur sera toujours continué. ——–edward n

    Phil talked many times about his daughter, Corban and how much he loved her. He was very proud of her. My prayers are with you Phil, and your family, and I’ll call Silent Unity for prayers for your daughter, Corban.
    Phil, if you go to silentunity.org there are people who will pray with you 24/7.
