Domenic was a super person and will be missed by many. When the boys were playing sports he was always ready to help with the programs and stay involved. Our prayers and sympathy are with the family.
To the DePastino family. The first time I met Dominic was during 1964 on Westwood Road. There he was standing with that famous smile with eyes full of life and home for the weekend from the seminary. Oh yes, wearing the robes of a Priest too! To my surprise during that summer we became good friends building many years of fond memories.
As I reflect to those days, separated by forty plus years of time I can still see the grin and those eyes full of life and happiness. Certainly, our life's callings separated us, each following separate but similar paths.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those who love and miss Dominic, but Dominic lived life to the fullest, and loved his family with all his heart.
Today Dominic joins his Mother and Father, and his very, very special sister Rosie.
Lastly, I drift back to Mr. DePastino's words during Rosie's funeral. Quoting Rosie, "if your ever in trouble, need help or a friend, pick up the phone and dial R for Rosie." Perhaps we can add a D to that same sentence.
