I love you guys & I wish more then anything that I could be there! I know me and PJ were never really close b/c we didn't see each other much but I cherish all the memories we had growing up. The fun times at the condo and all our family holidays. The best memories I have are from when we would all get together as kids...I miss those days. I know it got harder as we all got older & had our own families but PJ all of the family were always on my mind. When I heard the news I prayed a long time.I felt at peace because in my heart I know PJ is in a better place & we will see him again one day. I continue to pray for his precious kids to understand the loss of their father & to know what an amazing person he was. I pray for you Phillip and Vicki as nobody should have to deal with the loss of a child and especially at such a young age. What an impact he had for the 29 years he was here....so many lives that were made better because of him. That is something to be proud of. And Angela and Damien stay strong! I know nobody can replace a sibling but remember all the good times! I know he was a great brother...it was very obvious! There is a song that comes to mind right now...makes me cry everytime I hear it in church... Coming home, coming home,
Nevermore to roam;
Open wide Thine arms of love,
Lord, Iím coming home.

That is just a part of it but I know I will be singing it someday as I meet all my loved ones including PJ! I am thinking of you all right now and if there was anyway I could be there I would! Love you guys!!

Angela: I am thinking of you all the time as you and your family travel through this sad time together. It often seems like things are to much to bear, but you are an example of tremendous strength. You need to know that about yourself, you need to be proud of yourself. I told you Saturday morning you would know all the "right" things to do, and you have. I love you like a little sister "shugg." My hope is as you experience the days and weeks ahead, you will continue to find comfort in all of the shared memories with your brother and family. Love, Carole

What do I say? I don't even know what to think. PJ was an amazing impact in my life. From the moment I met him when I was 11 years old I knew he was something special. Years went by before I saw him again at the age of 16 but he never left my mind. I suppose I was too young to know what real love was at the time but it was truly the biggest crush of my life. PJ and I found one another in the most fate driven way. I had no clue where he lived and we went around his neighborhood searching to find his house after all those years.... Someone told us to ask the little kids playing cause they knew everyone so we asked. They had no clue. Jokingly I said go around the corner to the third house on the left. So me and my sister Deanna Divilio looked at each other and said , WHY NOT, we've already gone to 2 other houses and knocked. So we did and what do you know a stocking on the front door read MUSCATO's. PJ had just gotten home from being away for quite some time and we had no clue of any of that. From that day things developed into something. Something I'll never forget for the rest of my life no matter how much forward I've gone in my life. PJ was my first love and I will always love him and have a place in my heart for him the father of my son. The other half of my first miracle. PJ and I went through so much people of our age never would have imagined. With our beautiful amazing son Phillip Gerard Muscato III. I am not sure how to continue this except to say to OUR family you guys know I love you and I am here ALWAYS. I didn't just fall in love with PJ back in those days I fell in love with each and every one of the family members. I will never stop loving you guys. You will never stop being my family. I will be here through ANYTHING you need from me or all I can do. Not sure this is the right place to say this but PJ, please know I will do everything and anything to be the best mother I can possibly be. I will make sure Phillip knows how much his daddy loves him. I will cherish the memories we made and make sure you live on forever in our hearts. Your place in my heart remains forever. ♥

So sorry to hear about PJ. I know there are no words to bring comfort at a time like this, but know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I must congratulate the eneellcxt captains on the Andiamo. Funny we ended up with two captains even with the same name (2 Phil's one from South Africa and one from Australia!!). Somehow they were able to figure out their accents and actually could communicate with each other quite well .. . No money can pay them, they are true gems both of them. We enjoyed their company and the all out captain-ing they put in to our 6 sailing days in San Blas, the cooking, the cooperation with everything was beyond the call of duty. BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO.Especially to you Phillip Morris, whenever I am a rich man with my own yacht, you are my chosen one as captain!! Good luck in all your endeavors and look us up when in Toronto!
