    From the Willie & Sarah Phillips’ family, we send our love and prayers. My father Jerry Phillips spoke about Claude with warm affection and love. Both Jerry and Claude liked to fish. Let’s hope they are swapping fish stories now together. May the LORD comfort the family. Jason Phillips, Tyler.

  2. There was never a happier and more friendly person than “Claudie” Phillips. I grew up at Wilson and had known him forever. Every time I saw him I always got a big hug and one of his big smiles. He never forgot his Wilson friends.
    Claudie and Jane were like two peas in a pod. Every time I saw him she was always with him which I thought was wonderful.
    I will miss his big hugs and being to chat for a little while. I’m saddened by his death, Jane. May God be with you and will be keeping an arm around you with support for you to lean on.
    A big star has been added to Heaven.
