Best Wishes To Benedict (Phil) Who Is Seriously Ill

I have just discovered from a post by Richard, a friend of Phil (Benedict on this forum), that Phil is seriously ill in hospital. I'm sure you will all want to join me in wishing Phil a full and speedy recovery and sending our best wishes to his family.

Re: Best Wishes To Benedict (Phil) Who Is Seriously Ill

I'm sorry to hear that & wish him well too. It is tough being ill at any time, but even harder for Phil & everyone else in his family when they/we are supposed to be celebrating Christmas together.
