    Dear Lois and Family, It was a very sad day when I read of Phil’s crossing. I am sure that Phil will be missed at the
    events of CFF. We all share so many wonderful moments during Phil’s tenure as a Judge in The Cat Fancy. May the warmth of those wonderful memories and friendships help to ease the burden of loss that you must all feel.
    Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
