I was Maria"s first grade reading teacher at Thomas Elementary School. Maria was so precious with such a sweet little soul and just adorable. I remember her so well. Every time I see Dom's sports stories with the pin on his lapel I think of her. It broke my heart when I heard of her tragic passing. The memories of her are such a blessing and I will never forget her. May God be with your family and friends who grieve the loss of such a precious one.

Hello, Dom and Terri,
I have asked our Father in Heaven to hold you and your children close in His arms. I know something like the death of your beautiful Maria is difficult to comprehend. One day He will explain all of the reasons to you. In the interim, please lean into those loving arms and rest. Only He can give you the peace and comfort you desire. I am sure you will have many difficult days ahead. Please know that He has blessed your lives with people who love you and are praying for you, and will continue to.

Dom, We have never met, but I have always considered you a friend. I love your demeanor! My heart and prayers are with you and yours! I lost my a brother on July 2 suddendly and 9 days later I lost a sister, just as sudden. I still struggle with that harsh reality. I know hard days are ahead for us both, but no matter how difficult or how heavy the pain, we must both trust the God we serve! Your heart must feel some relief in knowing just how much you are loved in Central Ohio by friends and strangers. Please know that above all, I pray that time will allow you to heal and that you will again smile from your heart. I love to dance and have not danced since my family's tradegy, I yearn to dance again. I also want to see your smile that I know comes from the inside and radiates out to the world. We love you, Dom! God's peace to you and your family!

May you find comfort in all the wonderful years you had with this beautiful young woman, but most of all, always let the brightness that is her everlasting spirit live on in your thoughts about her and in everything you do in her name. Let it make you smile, she would want that! Bless you all, our hearts ache with you and for you as we pray for you to soon find your peace. A wise someone once said, it doesn't really get any easier... in time, you just grow stronger. Thinking of you in sympathy. Take care.
