Dear Marie & Family,
I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Domenic. He was a wonderful guy and I will always remember the good times my family and I had with him. Always remember your good times with him and he will always be in your heart. I will always keep him in my prayers. (My brother Freddy Coia was his good friend for a long time).

Melanie and Marie,

I am very sorry that I couldn't be there today. I have known Domenic since the first grade. We spent a lot of time together when we were kids. We had many good times together. We had a lot of fun bowling in the men's travel league. Domenic was a really good bowler. We went to clubs together. We played cards with our friends every Super Bowl Sunday. I will always remember all the good times we had.
I will keep you in my prayers during this difficult time.
