      So sorry for your loss, Dominic will be missed by all. It was a pleasure visiting on Vine Street and seeing Dominic and Connie at their home, always so gracious. Our daughter Pamela will always remember Dominic for his help on her wood shop project that she still holds dear to her and continues to use after all the years. He is in our thoughts and prayers.

      My deep and sincere sympathies!  Dominic and Connie were the best neighbors who turned into friends to both my husband Lou and I.  Dominic was so kind when Lou passed, I am so sad, but very grateful to have known him.
