Dear Janet and family, I am so sorry to hear about Phil. I am deeply saddened by the news. I fondly remember Phil for his laughter, kindness, friendship and above all sincerity, not just as a colleague, but also the few years I had the privilege to share a flat in London with him as a friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you mourn the loss. With deepest condolence, Kai Rentta (Zeliang)

Today the world is a poorer place. Phil was one of life’s good guys, a good friend, a real gent and a true hero, though he never saw it that way. Phil loved the sun and said he was sure he was solar powered; may the sun always shine. Indeed, a sad time.

Dear Janet and family, I am so very sorry you have lost Philip and would like to send you all my sincere condolences. My thoughts are with you at this sad time and today especially. It was a real privilege to get to know Philip over the past 5 years from when I started walking Jade and Jennie. He was such a lovely, kind, friendly, good humoured, inspirational person and great role model for younger generations. Reading his obituary has filled me in on some additional details I never knew about his amazing life and has increased my admiration for him even further. I have been listening to a lot of music by Dame Vera Lynn recently and her version of “Rose of England” is a very appropriate track for him 🌹 RIP Philip Storey 🇬🇧

 

Ajith
