To Neal and Family, Mrs. Dolvin was a wonderful lady. My boys had the pleasure to know her from UPE. They never had her, but still loved her as one of their teachers. It was a shock to learn of her sudden passing. My aunt, Miss Irene Gentry, thought a lot of Mrs. Dolvin. She will be so greatly missed. She never knew a stranger and would always speak to my boys and take the time to listen to what they were doing in school. Neal, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Jan and David Hallman Josh and Robert
