Before and AfterThe Los Angeles years of Waite and Genevieve Phillips are a period about which most of us know very little. Courtesy of the Phillips family, you can get a never-before-seen glimpse of their Los Angeles lives right here, right now, in this family snapshot. This snapshot shows Waite and Genevieve on his 81st birthday January 19, 1964, just days before his death. This may be the last photo ever taken of them together.

When you attend the Celebration of their lives in Los Angeles January 31 and February 1, 2014, you will get more glimpses of the world in which they lived: all events will be in the neighborhood where they lived longer than anywhere else.

Our opening mixer will be in a building which existed when Genevieve was alive and which she likely drove past, our luncheon will be in a Westwood Village restaurant which they certainly drove past on a regular basis and maybe ate there as well, the Celebration Observance will be conducted in the chapel where their funerals were conducted, and capping it all off will be the visit to the Phillips mausoleum, open for the first time to public viewing. (An unofficial event will be a trip to 10659 Bellagio Road where, if you are quick about it, you can get a photo of yourself in front of the gate at the address where they lived.)

You all know the Phillips story at Philmont, many of you know the Phillips story in Tulsa, now you have the opportunity to learn the Phillips story in Los Angeles.

Registration cut-off is January 5, 2014.
