Sunday was Phillip's last day on duty as Paramedic with the Clarendon Ambdance Association. PhiMp is moving to Amarillo where he will be employed at St. Anthony's Hospital in the Emergency Depart- ment. He will be caring for Cardiac patients. There is an old saying that goes "sometimes we don't know what we have until we lose it". I feel that a lot of people in Donley Coun- ty have no idea what they have lost. But I also know that many of us know only too well what we have lost. As we came to say good-by to Phillip and to wish him well there were several people who stood to try to tellwhat he has meant to them through the years. None of us were able to say what was really in our hearts in the few minutes we had. There was a few laughs as we recalled some of the funnier things and there were also quite a few tears. A little over four years ago when I first became when I first became an EMT, I like so many others didn't know Phil. I will be the first to tell you I was scared silly of him. A lot of people had a lot of different things to tell me about him. Most was good but as always some was not so good. But over this last four years as I have begun to feel that I really know Phillip, there is one thing that stands out to me above all others. Phil Vargas cares about the people of Clarendon and Donley County. Phil cares about people period. No one who saw the tears as Phillip tried to thank each of us for the party could fail to un- derstand that. The Clarendon News Phillip understands some- thing that I feel some of us as EMS Personnel have forgotten. Our only reason for being is Patient Care. The patient has got to come before anyone's egos, feeling of self impor- tance, hurt feelings or any of the other silly things we sometimes manage to come up with that seem to get in the way of why we are out there on that ambulance. The Patient must come first, as they al- ways have with Phillip and many of the other perscnnel. Phillip has just finished teaching a EMT class at the fire station in Clarendon. I feel very for- tunate to have had the opportunity to have been a student in that class. I never made an ambulance run with Phillip that ! didn't feel that I learned something from him. I never sat and talked with him at the Donut Stop for very long at a time that there wasn't something that would come up that he would ex- plain to me that would help me un- derstand something I had not been clear on. Phillip will do well in his new job I am sure. We wish him only the best. Brand said in her speech at the farewell party that Phillip was many different things to many people. To her he is of course "Daddy", to me he was a Paramedic and teacher. But most of all I feel he is my friend. Good friends are rare. My best to you, my friend!
