    Sorry I’m so late. I just recently drove through the ‘old neighborhood, and things looked ‘different’ at the Hannan home so I Googled to discover a very influential man in my childhood had passed. Phil was always good to all of the kids growing up. He, by example, helped us form a strong work ethic. We all learned that if you wanted something, you had to earn it.Mr. Phil was also the best square dance caller, bar none. He taught us all and, to this day,I never miss the chance to square dance.Thank You, Mr. Phil for who you are and all you did, for everyone. Heaven now has the best square dances. God Bless.
