Dolphy's friends in the industry paid tribute to him in necrological services held at the Dolphy theater at ABS-CBN on Wednesday.
ABS-CBN president Charo Santos-Concio led the audience in a final applause for the comedy king.
The Quizon family, led by Dolphy's son, Eric, and Dolphy's long-time partner, Zsa Zsa Padilla, were grateful for the tribute.
They also thanked the Filipino people for their support and prayers.
"To Dolphy, thank you very much for being so proud of me, for giving me my two girls, for being so thoughtful, and for doing your best to provide for us," Padilla said.
She then sang "Though the Years" a capella before she broke down in tears after telling Dolphy that she loves him. - ANC, The World Tonight, July 11, 2012
