None of those leaders, in my opinion, have had greater influence than Phil DiSaia. On a personal note I owe my professional growth to Phil and I am most grateful to him.

I will surely miss him. DiSaia, Phil—was a role model and a friend. An inspiration and a trusted, honest advisor. His commitment to every aspect of gyn oncology was only superseded by his love of family. The breadth and magnitude of his contributions are incomparable. He will be greatly missed by many. Phil must be credited with making GYN Onc the success it is today!! Personally I have lost a life long best friend and colleague, a relationship that I have and will continue to cherish.

Phil has become an icon to those who have strived to emulate his academic, clincial, national and interantional leadership and mentorship but probably most important his friendship. Erble and I have on many occassions spent hours, days, weeks with Phil and Patti both at home and around the world. What a great relationship! Our prayers and thoughts continue for Patti and their sons. Bill and Erble.
