    I saw Phil in myself as friends and didn’t truly recognize his demons until we were roommates. Ultimately I’m a better man from my experience with him. I pray he is at peace.

    The pain of losing one’s child, no matter their age, is unimaginable. It’s not the way things are supposed to be. My heart goes out to the entire Carpenter family. We are so sorry for this loss.

  5. I am so sorry to hear this. I always had a soft spot for Phil when he was a young boy in our neighborhood. He always had a smile on his face and was polite and kind. Thinking of his family today.
