Philip
Wine Tasting

Philip joined us in December as our 400th Guest! That’s our volunteer Sharon Bennett welcoming Philip to our Green Room in December, reassuring him that he was in a safe, beautiful home surrounded by the sweetest caregivers.

Philip was the youngest of six and very much loved and adored. We had a lot in common with Philip – he was the owner and operator of Vinyard Funeral Homes in Floresville, serving many families with love and compassion – just like we do!

Philip was an adventurer and a maverick who had a quick wit, even in his final days, and loved traveling, a wide variety of music, hunting and spending time with cherished friends and family. Montana and Yellowstone National Park were dear to his heart. He was a wonderful cook and enjoyed cooking for others.

“He was a hero and a cowboy at heart and came to the rescue of many throughout his life,” his family wrote. “He will be deeply missed.”

Philip was under the care of Gentiva Hospice.
