Nag-post ng mensahe ng pasasalamat at schedule for public viewing ng mga labi ng Comedy King na si Dolphy ang anak niyang si Ronnie Quizon sa Facebook group na Independent Cinema Artists of the Philippines.
Si Ronnie ay anak ni Dolphy sa dating aktres na si Baby Smith, na gumamit ng screen name noon na Pamela Ponti. Kapatid ni Ronnie ang aktor-direktor na si Eric Quizon at ang aktor na si Jeffrey "Epy" Quizon.
Yumao kahapon, Hulyo 10, ang Hari ng Komedya ganap na alas-8:34 ng gabi matapos ang mahigit isang buwang pagkakaratay sa Makati Medical Center (MMC).
“Multiple organ failure secondary to complications brought about by severe pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and acute renal failure” ang opisyal na sanhi ng pagpanaw ni Dolphy ayon sa inilabas na statement ng MMC.
Sa post ni Ronnie ngayong araw, Hulyo 11, humingi muna ito ng paumanhin sa mga hindi niya nasagot na kumu-contact sa kanya mula nang mamatay ang kanyang ama.
Aniya, naging abala siya at ang kanyang pamilya sa pag-aasikaso ng burol at libing ng kanilang ama.
Nangako siyang babalikan ang mga tumatawag at nagte-text sa kanya sa lalong madaling panahon.
Pagkatapos nito’y inilagay na niya ang ilang requests at schedule ng viewing ng mga gustong magbigay ng huling respeto sa kanyang ama.
Narito ang kanyang mga posts:
1. PLEASE WEAR WHITE FOR MY DAD. IT’S MY FATHER’S FAVORITE COLOR.
2. Instead of flowers, please make donations to the DOLPHY AID Para Sa Pinoy Foundation. My father would prefer that you help him help other Filipinos.

Para sa mga kaibigan at kakilala niyang gustong gumawa ng arrangements sa pamilya ni Dolphy, kontakin na lang daw siya ng mga ito at pipilitin niyang ma-accommodate ang mga request na makukuha niya.
Bago niya wakasan ang kanyang post, nag-iwan siya ng bilin mula sa kanyang ama, noong nabubuhay pa ito.
“SMILE! That’s what my father asked from all of you. He would appreciate it if you smile when you think of him, and to smile at someone to make his day brighter too. To quote his favorite song.......’YOU’LL FIND THAT LIFE IS STILL WORTHWHILE, IF YOU JUST SMILE.’ ~ Charlie Chaplin
“OUR FAMILY CONTINUES TO THANK THE NATION FOR ALL THE LOVE. WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU TOO.
