A Personal Note To Our
Relatives, Co-Workers And Friends:
On August 18, 2006, Dillon Joseph Phillips died, and part of us died too. There was no warning, and no reason we know of for the loss.
Dillon was 5 lbs 5 oz and 18 3/4 inches long. We know the tragedy has also affected many of you. The love, concern and support you have showed us is greatly appreciated.
We came home from the hospital with empty arms, but the memories of our little angel will last a lifetime.
Once again, thank you for your love, concern and support.
Love from:
Joanne, Matt, and Matthew

The Funeral and A Note:
Saturday August 26, 2006, the funeral service for Dillon was held at Pat H. Foley Funeral Home located at 1200 W 34th in Houston Texas.
Services were performed by, Dillons Great Uncle, Larry D. Phillips
The director and employees, of Pat H. Foley Funeral Home, were wonderful and made this sad time in our lives just a little bit easier. As one of Dillons Grandpas, I thank them from the bottom of my heart and I'm sure I speak for the other family members also.
Matthew and Joannes immediate family, along with co-workers and friends attended. It was kind of a "given" that the immediate family attended to give our love and support to Matthew and Joanne, but the love and support from co-workers and friends who attended was priceless!
To those of you who wrote in the guestbook or donated money to help with expenses, Thank you. You may never know how much you mean to Matthew and Joanne! You will receive a personal thank you from Matthew and Joanne in the next couple of weeks.

The Graveside Service:
After the funeral service, there was a private graveside service at Memorial Oaks Cemetary, attended by the immediate family members of Matthew and Joanne. Once again, I have to say the professionalism and compassion shown at Memorial Oaks Cemetary (just like at Pat H. Foley Funeral Home) was second to none.
Dillons father, Matthew, wrote a very personal note to his son Friday night August 26, 2006 exactly one week after the death and the night before the funeral.
He read it as he stood beside the small casket and afterwards ask that I include his words to Dillon on this website.
After reading the below messages, you, like me, may get a small feeling of what it is like to be a "still Daddy" or a "still Mommy", which are the terms used for you when your child is "still born".

Bye my son I love you
You'll never know how much

Bye my son I love you
You'll never see how much

Bye my son I love you
You'll never get to feel how much

Bye my son I love you
You'll never leave my heart

Bye my son I love you
Until we are united again
I never got the chance to see you staring back at me.

I never got to hear you cry.

You never got the chance to breath the air.

I love you and will always miss you.

You are such a beautiful person, and left this life to soon.

I would do anything just to have 1 moment with you.

Just believe that your mom, your brother, and me will miss you.

We will meet again one day, and I know you will be waiting on us.

Goodbye my son, Dillon Joseph Phillips,
