Phil was one of the nicest men we have had the privilege to know on this earth. What was there not to like about this man? He was always exceptionally kind to us. The name "Phil Frost" and "Good" have always been synonymous with us. He will be missed by a lot of us, but not for long, because it is only a matter of time until all of us who know Jesus will join him.
