I just received word of Dominic's death and I am so saddened by it. To all of his family: my deepest sympathy, as I know you have lost a caring gentle soul. As a high school girl and part of the 'gang' who hung out together...Rae, Lefty, Nancy, Harold, and Danny, I have so many wonderful memories. And did we have fun singing and playing in "The Sandpebbles" ! And passing cassettes back and forth to and from Vietnam. I still have the guitar picks he gave me. From the early days together in high school to the special times when we reconnected in the late 1990's, I hold him close to my heart. Nancy "Blondie" Brown

Hello to all of the family. Last year I stopped and spoke to your mom, she was a sweet lady..and today I got a call from my brother Bill telling me of Doms passing. I am so sorry for your loss. It is funny how life is, we grow up move around and loose touch with the kids we grow up with..and when we hear about their deaths, it stirs those old memories. I am currently in California for the winter, but I am with you in my thoughts and prayers at this time. Your friend, jeannie (megill)

You know, Dom...I don't recall crossing paths with you since '68 graduation ceremonies. But, that doesn't mean that you, along with many other historical classmates of mine, haven't been thought of from time to time over the years. From 4th ward kindergarden, through 8 years @ St. John's, and naturally, MHS, many memories remain. As with so many other classmates, I regret that paths do not cross more often than they do throughout life. Like so many others, we were part of each others' formidable years. We can't get that back, or change it. We can simply remember it. I will remember you, and numerous others, until it is my time. Rest is peace, Dom...
