Condolences

Condolence From: PW
Condolence: Expressing my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. May Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ comfort and console you during this difficult time. God's word promises at Acts 24:15 the hope of being reunited with your loved one again here on earth. You can have complete confidence in this promise because of the resurrections of Lazarus and others that Jesus brought back to life here on earth and also, because God cannot lie.

Condolence From: Lucas
Condolence: We all have friends thru out life.some are good and some are better, and very few are best..He was my BEST friend and shared all with me-the good the sad, and his final health problems..He just did not want his friends to pity him due to his failing health..we talked 3-4 times per week for many years..He knew myeloma was fatal, but his optimism was amazing..I remember when he and I googled it, and found out how really bad with no full recovery..he would tell people he was having routine medical testing, when in fact he was getting chemo, radiation, steroids and dozens of pills--even a bone transplant which was long tedious and very very painful..

He loved and was so proud of his police work, TLU work, the US Navy and his Country..His phone recoding "God bless you and our wonderful Country-America"...Phil never met a stranger and was the most patriotic person I have known...He was a mentor to many a young person at TLU and at the restaurants he frequented..Thanks to the many who attended his beautiful funeral,(thanks , Sandie at North Funeral Home).. and a special thanks to Cedar Hill PD and TLU families....I just listened to one of his many telephone messages and began to cry...He sent me so many email photos of people he loved and some he just met in line somewhere. Special thanks to TLU friends, police and military friends, his Daughter, Dee, too many to name here but you know who your are... and those who just heard him say TOP SECRET- his favorite line....We will miss him and will laugh at his contagious smile and many stories..He will never be forgotten---a very special person..We lost a good one..

Condolence From: Jen Crownover
Condolence: Chief was an amazing man, father figure, story teller, and encourager. I am a better person for having known him. I had the pleasure of being one of his dispatchers back in the TLU days, and our friendship has carried on ever since.
And, always talking in "detective code speak..."
Love ya, Chief "Bacon Bricks"

Condolence From: Erin Martinez
Condolence: I'm so sad to hear this news. I attended TLU while he was Chief, and also waited tables at Johnny Macs where Chief came in to eat everyday. He was such a jokester and always made everyone laugh. On campus he would turn on his siren and wave at me when he saw me around campus! He loved coming in to the restaurant during the "slow hours" so he could cut up with all of us. He was also security at my wedding. Rest In Peace, Chief.

Condolence: Dee, I am so sorry for the lose of your Dad. I have worked and been friends with Phil since he started working as a Private Investigator. He and I worked his first case together in Corpus Christi. We really got to know each other well on that trip and worked many case together after that. We also had many dinners together in Austin and San Marcos. He was a true friend. I know he Loved You and spoke of you often. He will be missed by me and all the guys at Peden Investigations and his many friends. May God Bless You and comfort you.

Condolence From: Tori Way
Condolence: "Sometimes people come into your life for a moment, a day, or a lifetime. It matters not the time they spent with you, but how they impacted your life in that time". Boy, am I so glad Phil Hambrick impacted my life so positively 5 years ago. He was a regular at Texas Roadhouse in San Marcos and little did I know then what valuable relationships I would gain working as a server throughout college. Phil was so passionate about college kids and just truly loved people. He was a joy to be around and there was never a dull moment with him. I'm so grateful to have kept in touch with him even after college and for the ways he supported me during the big moments in my life. Phil called me his surrogate daughter and he sure did feel like family to me. I visited with him often throughout this hard season of his life and he never once lost his positivity. Phil was a fighter. His nature was to serve and to fight; never giving up. A father, a police chief, a veteran of the US Navy, and a real good friend. You were so loved and adored Phil. I will miss you more than words can say. Rest In Peace. ❤

To the loved ones of Phil: Keep The Lord close. Know and trust that His will is good. He is such a good, good father and Phil's sweet soul will be in a place far better than we can imagine.
