I will remember Dominick as a wonderful neighbor, friend and a gentle man. He would go for daily walks and make it a point to stop by and chat about anything and everything. Family was everything to him and he loved talking about the many trips he would take with them over the years. He had the nicest yard and was an inspiration to others in the neighborhood. Dominick was a giving man often sharing vegetables from his impeccably maintained garden. While Dominick's passing brings tears to my eyes that will, with time, change to smiles thinking back of the warm memories my family will always have of him. Dominick was a warm and caring man. Dominick never met my parents but when my mom passed recently he showed up during calling hours. Unfortunately his health was failing at the time but to think he went out of his way really touched our family and I'm forever grateful. But that's Dominick. Always thinking of others. I'm extremely grateful that Dominick was part of my life and my family's life. Many people come and go in our lives. But Dominick will never go away from my life because of the positive affect he had and I will be forever grateful and blessed for our friendship. I believe the Lord has now embraced him and reunited him with Gertrude, the love of his life, who he so dearly missed. God blessed him and I'm so blessed to have had a friendship of over twenty years with a truly good man.
Joe and Nick, please accept our deepest sympathies for your family loss.
Sincerely Jim, Sue and Heather
Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Know that God is aware of the tears you are shedding. (Psalm 56:18) He will soon do what is said at Acts 24:15, which promises us of a resurrection of our loved ones. May that bring you hope. Take comfort in your good memories and allow your family and loving friends to help you through this difficult time.
Dear Joe & Nick,.
Joe & I were so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. Please accept our deepest sympathies. We will always remember Christmases at Aunt Mickie & Uncle Johnny's and seeing you all grow up. We truly enjoyed the laughter and the memories we will always have. I truly believe your Dad & Mom are together again. Sincerely, Sandi & Joe Fondino
