With the sudden death of Dom I find myself looking for happier/lighter memories just so I won't be overwhelmed with the saddness. I remember when the club first hired Dom to be our Head Coach. Many moms both young and a little older grinned at the prospect of this good looking young man being part of our club. Then came the smile. He smiled and charmed his way into all our hearts. But little did we know the best was yet to come because beneath the good looks and charm was an extremely well-mannered, respectful, intelligent, fun person who touched the lives of many people. He was at ease with the very young players, was a tremendous role model for the older players and a great asset to our association. I will miss our meetings going over equipment stuff, I will miss his input when he came to help our Silver B team and I will miss talking to him on the sidelines of my son's games. I will just miss him. To his parents and family, his time with us was too short and we share in your grief. He accomplished more than many of us dream of and I feel blessed that he became a part of my family's life. Good-bye Dom, you will not be forgotten.
