Philip J. Tavella was my uncle, he was my father's brother. I knew him well but I never spent much time with him, I wished that I could have. He was a very smart man, and he was very talented, creating things with his hands. He was a great craftsman that loved building furniture as well as fine cabinet maker.
He was a good father to his children and supported them with their educational endavors. Both of his daughters are very telented and are great artist. Thank you uncle Phil, I think of you often. Philip
