I remember “ Dom” from the last 4 years of school. Never tied his timberland boots but always had his basketball shoes laced. Dominic was a great athlete I played mostly basketball with him but I knew his potential in other sports as well. My Uncle lived across the street for 6 years and anytime I would go visit my uncle I would stop by to see Dom. Me and Dom used to make fun of our old math teacher Mr. S because he would constantly threaten the class with warnings that really never ended with consequences. Every time we attend his class we would yell “YOU HAVE A WARNING “ in a high pitch voice all throughout the entire class period and for some reason that brought a smile to Dominic’s face sometimes he would laugh so hard it would sound hoarse so we just kept doing it for the rest of the school year.

Dominic Marino you will be greatly missed. I wish you peace and hope to see you again in another world. You were a great friend and a great person. Rest easy my friend.
