This comes after it was revealed that Phil’s newly discovered daughter Phylis is preparing to move next-door to him in West Monroe, Louisiana to make up for all the lost time.
“We just had an instant connection and we were thrilled that she found us and we found her,” Phil’s oldest son Al said.

The whole Robertson family is OK. We're not going to let this drive-by shooting change how we live. Remember, the spirit God gave us does not make us timid. (2 Timothy 1:7) We won't cower in fear. We'll keep on sharing Jesus and offering ourselves as a living sacrifice. There's nothing that will separate us from God's love. My prayer for America is the same today as it was yesterday and the day before — for everyone to love God and to love each other. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
“The same year that she was born, he was reborn, in the sense that he became a different person, which Phyllis says gives her a lot of peace of mind even now, knowing that he changed,” Al explained to Fox News.
Al added that while he realizes some will be critical of the story, he doubts these haters are aware of his family’s history.
“A few people said, ‘This guy is a hypocrite,’ or ‘I knew that they were too good to be true,’ but they didn’t really read the story or listen to the podcast because they would have known that this was dad’s previous life and he has said for 45 years that he was not a good person during this period of time,” he continued.
Al went on to say that everything that has happened has encouraged him to reflect on his family’s past.
“I realized that my parents were really going through a terrible time in their marriage,” he said, “Our family was just totally a mess. Dad was off and we didn’t really see him much. But Mom, she wasn’t drinking and drugging and living this lifestyle, so she remembered a lot more about details, about the situation.”
