I pray for healing for Phil if that is God's will. Most of all I pray that he is ready to pass from this world to the next. Phil Aaron has been around as long as I can remember. He was the type of doctor, who, if you needed a shot, he gave you one; and not just a bunch of pills.

Usually you were better in a few days.

He loved to talk and laugh and he always made time to talk to his patients.

I remember when my daddy (Paul Curry) was sick, and WOULD NOT go to the doctor, Phil came to the house to see him.

Daddy was really sick and needed to go to the hospital. Daddy wanted no part of that. Phil made a deal with Daddy that he would let him stay at home that night, but he would be back in the morning to check on him, and if he wasn't any better, THEN he would go to the hospital.

He kept his word and came back and daddy agreed to go to the hospital.

Phil truly cared for his patients. Not a lot of doctors like that anymore. They shuffle you in and out and on to the next one.

I saw Phil myself on several occasions and got the help I needed and didn't have to keep going back numerous times.

Columbia and surrounding counties have missed him since he stopped practicing. I pray for Phil and for his family in this difficult time.
