Just heard about what happened. I am so sorry to hear this. We have not seen each other in a while but it hurts just as much. We grew up together and have a lot or memories. Don't know where the time went but it just feels like yesterday that we got our cars and tried to see who had the fastest. Good thing we had a friend at the end of the road who saw the cop and we hit the brakes to look like we were just driving. There is more stuff but that is in my memory forever.
Love you
Cousin Tom

Thank you Dominic for your help and encouragement when I was Men’s Club President at St Elizabeth Ann Seton Church.
We would see each other at the Saturday 4 o’clock mass or at a grocery store and you would give me a wonderful smile and hello.
These past few years we saw less of each other but I will always remember your smile.
Rest In Peace my friend and thank you.

We are out of town on Monday, but my thoughts and prayers are with your family.

My two favorite memories of Dominic were 1. When he used to come over to the house and share a cup of coffee with my husband when Frank was so sick. He used to love teasing me about the cup of coffee I gave him from what looked like a tea bag. He said it wasn’t real coffee. 2. This was when I had just gotten a van to transport Frank in his wheelchair. Dominic volunteered to drive him to the doctor in Gainesville. I hadn't tied the chair in tight enough so when he went around the corners the chair would tip precariously to one side or the other. He stopped and we tightened everything. We laughed all the way to the doctor’s office.
Dominic was a devoted friend to my husband and I am forever grateful.
May his soul Rest In Peace.
Love,
Beth Tatto
