In the seven days since the accident, those touched by Flip and his family have joined in heart and soul, and body and mind. They stood en masse at the hospital; they prayed together; they hoped. Thousand have expressed their sympathy and support online. The brotherhood. The family. The community. Flip is survived by a wife and two daughters and so many others. Arrangements are pending.
