Jarewell
Dad ... Even though we didn't see eye to eye, we knew in our hearts
how much we loved each other. I'll miss you'very much (and the crab &
rice). May you rest in peace and be with God. Love always,
Your daughter Yvette
Top Spoon: Our "Social Fridays" were a welcome breather for the folks
at Benjamin's Inlet. Your cooking always hit the spot. We'll really miss
that laugh, your stories and yes, your food. Long Path-Garden street
will never be the same without you. We know we can depend on you
being here with us in spirit. Go in peace!
The Gang on the Corner at Benjamin's Inlet

Jimmy... Our hearts are very heavy from your sudden departure. It is
said, "To rejoice over death," but Jimmy, that's very hard to do.- We miss
the good times we've had and most of all your hearty laughter. But God
knows what is best for joy cometh in the morning, so rest in peace.
Miss you.
Tonny and Janice
Liston... A friend and uncle. Heavenly Father, the death of our dear
friend and uncle Liston has filled our eyes with tears and our hearts with
sorrow. "Not my will, but Thine be done." You will be missed dearly, but
not forgotten. Who can forget your stammering words, your loud but
happy laughter? Words cannot describe or explain Liston. He was one of
a kind. Rest, your strife is over.
Looe Carmen, Eric, Elois and family

Dear Liston, "Neighbor" We've shared so many memories and
good times over the years since you became our neighbor. It is difficult to
believe that-we will no longer see you in this world. You shared your
skills and talents with many people, we.all benefited. We will sorely miss
your hearty laughter; your joyof music; your buzzing saw or hammer at
5:00 o'clock in the morning; your shouts "neighbor you up?"- your
friendly talks with our grandchildren who really enjoyed you. You were a












friend and a protector. We will truly miss you. Our sincere sympathies to
your family and good friends. Your death is our loss. Rest in peace.
The Connell Family, Olman, Sara, Craig, Chelsa, Chenee and CJ

My family and friends join me in extending our deepest sympathy in
this sorrowful time. We will always remember Liston for his charisma,
zeal, enthusiasm and overwhelming determination. Liston's faith in God
was exemplary. May Liston E. Phillips rest in eternal peace.
Myrtle A. Lang and family

Liston... We were deeply saddened by your passing, though you are
gone from us you will always be remembered by all of us at CDBG. Rest
in peace.
