Dear Gaither family and loved ones,

We all wish we were there to celebrate Dolphard's life. In the short time that I personally knew him (Lilly), I could tell he was stand up guy, who did everything in his power to make sure his family was taken care of. In addition, he was a funny guy who made everyone feel comfortable. I love that I was able to know him. I praying for you, Ellen, and family during this terrible time, but I am sure he is living his best eternal life watching over everyone and being chummy with his loved ones in heaven. Love you all greatly and sending tons of prayers of comfort and peace.

Love, Christian, Lilly and Ella Noble
