Dear Katie and family, and classmates,

It is with sadness that I read about out classmate Phil Carter passing away on Monday night. I didn't know Phil very well, but I remember that he was top notch in whatever he did, including getting to date Katie.

My heartfelt sympathies are sent to you Katie and family and to all our other classmates. 

Peace be with you.

Phil was a classy guy who brought a lot of laughs and fun to my life, while at BHS. My thoughts are with Katie and his family.

If schools had diplomats, ambassadors, senators and such, Phil was surely ours. He was thoughtful beyond his years and always seemed so much the gentleman, composed, friendly, and thoughtful. He also seemed genuine; there were no airs about this kid; he was real, he had goals, he wanted a future. I admired him very much and always enjoyed being in his company. Our class is gradually being whittled away, and He who wields the knife took a big piece of us when he called Phil home last week. Irb

My condolences to Katie and members of their family. More and more sad news comes to all of us as the years grind by. I try to thiink of the good times and how each one of us owes God a death. But mine? Now? Couldn't this be postponed awhile? What would be the harm in that? Good timeof life to improve one's abillities at Acceptance. Phil and I were partners on the Debate Team at least one year, maybe more. I still recall one of the topics, Resolved: That the basic principles of the Brannon Plan be adopted as farm policy by the US government. Other than that, we rarely did much of anything together , save attend the tournaments for public speaking, debate, impromptu, oratory, etc.. Sharpens the wits but also forces awareness of  "There are at least two sides of every question" amd thereis substance to both.  Phil played Center on the football team, as I recall. I made the wrestling team but could not run any track and field event, no matter how hard I trained. A good, but painful, life lesson about personal abilities and limitations. No matter how much we guys wished for a gymnast's body and 10-flat 100 yard dash time it was just not going to happen for most of us. Rest in Peace, Phil.
