Thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Phil Paragas. My most recent memory of Phil is at the family golf tournament in Phoenix a couple months ago. He appeared to be in good spirits and really was a champ to make the trip from Omaha to Phoenix to see family and be part of a yearly family tradition. Phil you will be sorely missed, you are in a better place in better hands, the pain you endured in the operations and hospital stays is over. RIP.
