I worked with Dolph for 23 yrs. at Surety Associates and continued to have contact with him until a few weeks ago. I have been trying to find out where he was since we only communicated thru cell phones. I was so upset when I found out he had passed away as I was still trying to find him. When they shut his cell phone off a few weeks ago, I thought maybe he just got very ill and not able to talk. I am soooo sorry I missed his services. He was a very dear friend of mine and I often decorated his house for Ga. vs Fl. week end - we had a very long rivalry! He was a great person and I will miss him so much. Debbie Jones
