Dominga, was one of the best clinic managers I have ever worked with. I had the honor of being one of the nurse-practitioners’ who worked with her at her family-planning clinic in Burnet. She knew her patients and really cared! I will always remember her big heart and remember her love of Burnet!

Many of my young childhood memories have Dominga, her family, and her home in them, from my first night spent away from home, to naming my dog Polly after my best friend, to bike accidents in front of the Salinas home, after which Minga doctored me. What an inspiration on how to live life, love family, and share love with others! Thank you, Dominga and Santos for having such a loving family and home!

Mrs. Salinas was an important person in my life. I spent many enjoyable days at her home when I was young. She always welcomed me and treated me like one of her family. I hope she knew how much that meant to me and that she was important in shaping the person I became as an adult. She is loved and will be missed!
