Young Dolph was laid to rest on Tuesday (Nov. 30) in a private funeral service in Memphis, Tennessee; local news outlets report. In a statement, the Memphis Police Department confirmed they were at the scene of the service and said Dolph’s family “asks that everyone please respect their privacy during this difficult time as they mourn the loss of their loved one.”
Fox 13 reporter Jeremy Pierre, who attended Dolph’s Celebration of Life, tweeted photos of the funeral program. One picture showed the 36-year-old and his grandmother together on an airplane, which Pierre said was the first time she ever flew.
After the service, Dolph was reportedly laid to rest at a cemetery in South Memphis.
As reported by REVOLT, the Dum and Dummer 2 crafter was tragically gunned down by two unknown assailants outside of Makeda’s Cookies earlier this month. So far, investigators have shared photos of the two armed suspects getting out of a white two-door Mercedes Benz, which was seized by police last week. However, no arrests have been made and police have not released any further information from their investigation.
Last week, Dolph’s family thanked fans for “the outpouring of love” in their first statement since his death.
“There are no words that exist, that sufficiently express the pain we are feeling as a family. Losing Adolph, Dolph, Man-Man, changes our lives forever,” they said. “And while we will take each day as it comes, we are comforted in knowing that he leaves a legacy that reflects his heart. A heart that was for his family. A heart that was for the people.”
The owners of Makeda’s Cookies also said they were “heartbroken” by the tragedy and pledged to name one of their signature cookies after Dolph, who was a frequent customer.
