Memories

  1. Uncle Dolphus I think you were probably the only other person I know who shared the same passion for fixing/maintaining cars as my dad, I remember many times listening to your car conversations even though It didn’t make sense at the time. You always stood out to me, as you were the only person to call me Junior. SIP Uncle

  2. Is it the little black girl from foster hall gully? Yes it uncle i will truly miss you. Who think the last time together be at my grandmothers funeral. I love you! Continue to SIP.

  3. Those we love never die they live on in our heart’s forever.
    I will always have very fond memories of uncle Dolphus
    Going on excursion to the seaside both our families, meeting up on Saturdays Around Julian ave fixing the cars, and family gatherings always lots of fun times had by all.

  4. Dearest Pauline and family. Our sincere condolences to you and everyone and remembering all the treasured memories spent with Dolphus being my dad’s good friend from Barbados. He will always be remembered and loved. May he Rest in peace.

  5. The bible says a good father leave an inheritance for his children’s children.
    That my uncle Dolphus, leaving an inheritance of good chatacter, integrity and love. My uncle’s presence filled a room, he never looked down on people and he gave everyone their due respect whether adult or child. I remember him being in Barbados at my home for family lunch and how he loved the kids and interacted with them all; he made sure that he made up for my dad’s absence knowing that he had passed years ahead and they didn’t know him but gave out so much to them. His intellectual understanding of past and current issues were perfound. His capacity to recall information and family events was just astounding, remembering whose kids were whom was just fantastic his generation of nieces and nephews here in Barbados, just wanting to know about their day to day lives, there school goals and endevours. His appreciation for them was felt with the gentleness of his words. He gave me such a sense of confidence about myself in own interactions; I could trust him his strength of words was reassuring. I remember being in England and he came down the passage and said to me “you are a pastor.” He bought a black dress that I have to this day. He came to Barbados and later asked me “Are you a pastor yet?” I replied and said “yes.” I had gotten ordained in the black dress he gave me.
    I remember our last face to face conversation, he had came home for Aunty Nita’s funeral it was the 28th of Nov 2019. I remembered this as my uncle had such a good memory that he was able to call the name of places and people with such percesion so I couldn’t forget the date at all. We sat and just talked; that’s one thing, I could let my hair down with him as he listened to me and I to him as he spoke about the family here and abroad, the nieces and the grans, everyone’s accomplishments that he saw as a blessing and also my cousin Lauralee being a lawyer as he was so proud and excited for her and that. I am grateful. He didn’t know her but he took her into his house as his own and that’s the kind character my uncle had.
    He always said he loved me and that I knew for sure. His actions and his words were aligined. Anyone called, he would always say tell Jackie I love her and without a shadow of a doubt I loved him. He was special and more than an uncle, he was my friend. I will miss him.

  14. Uncle “Dolly” as you was affectionately known was a man who was always cheerful and upbeat. No matter where he saw me, or who I was with, he would always go out of his way to greet me. Even though we were not blood, he would treat me as one of his own. Full of encouragement, many words of wisdom and letting me know if I had taken off too much or put on too much weight (LOL). With your trademark cap, and a love of cars, you will be sorely missed by your family and those who have come to consider you as such. Many thanks for the fond memories and teaching us how it is important to make time for one another.

    Uncle Dolly…rest in peace and enjoy a glass of Basian rum for me.
