In memory of Albert L Phillips Jr Silent Cry Inc.

Will you remember me? I will remember you, Albert L. Phillips Jr.

On December 24, 1986, someone made a decision that stopped time for those who loved you. I was in a pink robe when the police knocked on the door. It would be the moment you were never coming back. I figured our dad needed you more.

You became an angel to me. You were my brother, a larger-than-life hero. You would swing me until I thought I could touch the trees. Your children will carry on your name. I will never let the world forget you were here. I will remember you. Will you remember me? Your life will be remembered, Albert L. Phillips Jr.
