Carol Currelly-Burnham - June 10, 2024

Our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the remarkable Phil Mabey. Dave and I were among the many who were lucky to have spent time with Phil during our Dragon Boating years. In fact, Phil and I were part of the very first community team, the Wave Runners and occupied seat number 10 together for the first 10 years. We would laugh at trying to squeeze into that 24" space and swore that we had to be surgically separated by the end of each season. So many laughs and great times that we shared will always be dear to my heart. We are certainly blessed to have had Phil in our lives. Paddles UP!! - Dave Burnham and Carol Currelly-Burnham
