This past week, my friend Phil passed away from Friedriech’s Ataxia. I’m gonna miss the guy.
I met Phil at SJSU as we both had the same magazine writing class. Even though he was in a wheelchair and had trouble communicating sometimes, he was such a joy to be around. He always made me laugh and never let his disability get to him.
What’s even cooler was that we both share the same birthday. Back in 2009, I went to his birthday party and we just had so much fun (and good food). There is where I perfected by beer pong skills.
I’m gonna miss ya Phil. May you enjoy your new life with God and thank you for being so wonderful.
