Not sure what to say?

Years ago, when I was a graduate student at Cornell, I took classes with Prof. Hedlund. What I learned in his counseling classes carried through to all my interactions with students during my professional life, thirty years! Thank you, Prof Hedlund.

Dalva was the embodiment of equanimity, patience and caring. Not to mention that subtle sense of humor. I am extremely glad our paths crossed. Thanks.

Only Shakespeare could pay tribute to the nobility of Dalva. “ His life was gentle, and the elements
So mixed in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world, “This was a man.”

Dalva was a gift for many - smart, kind & gentle. You will be missed. Rest in peace.

What a nice man he was. So glad you all got to come to St. Simons and have special times together. God bless. Wanda Hicks

Such a wonderful legacy, to be remembered as a kind and gentle soul. My life was enriched by knowing Dal, and he will not be forgotten.

With sincere sympathy. Peace and blessings.

Dear Jo Ellen: I was so sorry to read of the death of your husband. My condolences to you and your whole family as you face this huge loss. Even though I have not seen you in years, I remember you fondly for really assisting me in the purchase of my first and second homes. I was a novice and you became someone I enjoyed seeing and hearing of your life. Take care and be well, Suzanne

Such a beautiful man.
