My mother in law was Lucy Howell. Lucy's son, Wayne, and I had the great pleasure of knowing Phil through Lucy's years at The Palms.
Lucy, or Lou as Phil called her, and Phil had a very special relationship. They became quite the pair at Happy Hour. They had their designated seats, marked by seat covers made by Phil. They were quite the comical twosome! Where you saw one you would see the other.

Phil Brooks and his friend Mary Lou Mapp in December 2016

I am so grateful I knew Phil through my grandmother, Mary Lou Mapp. He was always good for a joke and pleasant conversation. He was such a impressive man. My condolences and love to his family.

Phil was a great golfer and a greater person. He had the best golf swing in our Tuesday/Friday Sr golf group at Snee Farm, regardless of age. He will be missed!

So sorry to hear about Phil. He was a good friend to my father, Don Williams, when Dad came to live at The Palms, not knowing a soul here in Charleston. Phil welcomed Dad, me & my husband to join him for lunch, dinner & Happy Hour! Phil had a great voice & loved to sing love songs to his dear Estelle at Happy Hour. We had some good golf discussions along the way! Farewell to a Dear Friend.

Best uncle ever!

Uncle Philip was always my favorite uncle. For many years he would remind me that he was my only uncle. I will miss being able to pick up the phone and laugh with him and marvel at his wonderful life. Love to Nancy and Flip and their families.
