| || Notes for Phillip Allen Wickline:|
the things i can say about Phil.he was a unique person.he loved the auction house.it was something to do and get him out of the house.when he died i went and ate a bag of popcorn for him,that is something he would have done,i had seen him do it for weeks the last year he was sick,he dint get
involved with girls, not that he wouldn't have if anyone would have paid the slightest attend to him,he would have been interested.there was only two girls i ever heard him talk about Brenda and Malissa.
those was his love life.
he helped me out like Paul i lived with him after Paul died several times till i got married.i lived with
him when i got married to bill.we both lived with him several times after that to,when i came home from saint Louis and then when i came home fromFlorida.he was alas there and willing to help. i cant
tell you how many times he helped move me.and then bill to.he got mad a couple times when we moved without him, is what i was told.
Phil was a good Shoulder in the Vietnam period.he went to Germany but not to Nam.
Phil came home and he got a job thru Dave and went to work to his one and only job after the war, at Samuel strapping in Columbus ohio.those people came to his funeral and praised him highly for the job he did.
i remember Phil telling me the story,when i heard his boss tell it at the funeral,he said there was a guy who tried to beat Phil work harder and then longer he was trying to outdate Phil.
that boss dint know how hard Phil worked to always out work that boy,he just bragged on Phil,he said when Phil went out sick,it took 3 guys, to do his job he did so much.Phil said that his boss told him that when he came to visit himhe laughedbut later you could tell Phil was totaly elated that it took 3.
he did love that job,i never heard him complain about that job like i hear other people complain,he loved his job.he new it and he new it well.
i bought an angle to put on his casket,i feel like that protected him and his memory during that time.
i loved Phil,i really really loved him,no one knew the relationship him and i had we were close and
he was always willing to give.he gave me two cars,in fact he gave me my first real running car,because he knew i needed it,i was 19.
then he gave me a car before he died,he knew how bad ours was and he was so good to us and got
it for us.
Phil couldn't spell very well,he would write home dear Mon,mom.we would chuckle but he wasn't
the brightest apple on the tree,but the purest,the solid one.
the connection i mentioned,Phil stomped breathing 5 minutes after i got up,he waited or hung in there
till he could hear my voice,that is what i feel.then he went on to the reward god was going to give him.
be big or small,i cant see god not rewarding him for at least his goodness.he did belive in god but
he did it in his own way.someone said he made his peace one day before he died.
he dint practice religion but he was religious.
Phil was good to everyone and touched each of our lives,i dont think he knew he shared his birthday with one of our aunts,if he knew that he would have planted on her step Im sure he was just that kind to do it.
he loved kids,he would take pennies to the nephews and Neice just for fun.some of those kids did some cute things with those pennies,little Paul took his to church and paid tithes on it and give in the offering,tom bought candy.josh and jayhad a penny throwing contest,i wont go into that.
he really was a good brother,i said my Godby when they picked him up to go to the funeral home,i helped them lift him up,he was to heavy for two of them so i got his feet which helped a little and i got
the door and i cried when they pulled out of his drive,i said my good bye to my brother then.
i dont care what any one says,i will dearly miss him.
he purchased a new mobile home just before he died,and that boy was so proud of that Traylor.
