I knew you as Captain and Chief of the Crisis Center, DRH, in the early 80s, and
respected you for your teaching abilities, diagnostic skills and expertise as a psychiatrist. Your aura, Joseph, will transcend this world and I am looking forward to saying “Hello, again, hello” to you in the next. God bless you on this very special journey. Love, Joyce

I was privileged to know Dr Dulka in the early 80’s during my time as a S. W. D. at a nursing home in Detroit. He cared greatly about his profession, and his patients. He would also make the “little” everyday caretaker feel important, as he knew we were the ones who knew his clients best. I so appreciated that about him, and always try to remember that - Everyone has importance and should be acknowledged.
While work was important to him, his family also remained first. He would always mention things about them.
My deepest sympathies to your family.

It was so great to know Joe professionally and personally. When I worked with Joe he taught me the importance advocacy and speaking up when things could be done better. Colleen and I always enjoyed the parties in August and October.
Our deepest sympathy to his family.
