God's blessings and peace as you mourn for Dolf. I pray you find comfort in the promise of the Resurrection and life eternal for all who believe and are baptized. This was the faith Dolf believed and confessed throughout life and the great legacy he has left for his family and friends. It was a privilege to have known Dolf and served with him at Our Savior's. In Christian love.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Nancy. It was a long and tough battle. I feel bad that we didn't see him again more recently but actually the Sunday we visited he looked good and was himself with the famous "it's martini time, we have to have a drink".. It was a good visit. A good memory.. Take care of yourself and if you need anything don't be afraid to call.


Dear Robyn, Our sincere condolences to you and your family. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
