Growing up, our backyard was nestled right behind Dom's house. As one of seven children also, we were forever outside playing and were always so happy to see Dom on his back step with a big smile. He and his mom were always so kind to us. We have visited him through the years and my sister Lori and I were in town this past May and stopped by to see him but he had moved out. I will always have fond memories of Dom and strive to be as kind by his example. You are in God's loving arms for sure. Prayers and condolences to his family.

Dom was our neighbor when I was growing-up. He and his mom were always so kind to us. I remember going over and hanging out in his garage nailing pieces of wood together. Every year my mom would have us write down what we wanted to be and in 1966 I said that I wanted to be a carpenter. This was mainly because of Dom. I can’t believe he’s gone. He’s just always been around. I think that he probably still is. I hope you are at peace and reunited with your departed family Dom. Thank you for being part of my life and especially for always being so kind to me. I will never forget you!
