My Story

Dominic was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma two days before he was to start kindergarten in 2008, he died just a few days after he finished second grade in 2011. Dom achieved many things and made many friends in his three years of school; most notably he was voted Math Wizard in first and second grades. Dominic learned to play chess and even taught myself, he was a very good teacher maybe a future math professor! Dom loved to play video and board games; he loved to be the banker during Monopoly on family game night, maybe a future finance major! Dom was always building with Lego’s, his Collection he called it, you see he built his own Lego town and buildings they were special. Maybe a future architect! Dominic was our son who touched our lives briefly but left us with many dreams to hold to.
