  1. Mom and I saw you at church this morning and went to the hall to see you, Helen. We didn’t find out about Dolph until after the service. We are so very sorry. Please let us know if there is anything we can do. We love you very much.

  2. I worked with and for Dolph for many years in Galveston, Texas. He was always a gentleman and a great boss. The extent of his devotion to his family and church was paramount. Although I have not seen him for many years I have thought of him often. I know his family misses him and I am very sorry for their loss.
