Deeply Shared Values
There was always enough room for a Christmas tree and a menorah in the Dominguez living room in December. The holidays reflected a commitment that Carlos Dominguez and his wife, Maureen, made to each other in 1991 — a wedding ceremony presided over by both a priest and a rabbi, and with the blessings of both families. "When you got down to it," Mrs. Dominguez said, "our values were the same."

Mr. Dominguez, 34, was born in Little Italy, the second son of Cuban immigrants. He was the first in his family to go to college, attending New York University. "He was just a very kind, caring person," Mrs. Dominguez said. During their courtship, the two volunteered in soup kitchens on the Bowery. After marrying, they converted their public service commitment into parenthood, with three daughters: Maria, 10, Amanda, 6, and Michelle, 20 months.

He was an independent contractor for Marsh & McLennan for three years, setting up firewalls for their computers. In 2000, the family moved from Brooklyn to a house in East Meadow, N.Y., and bought a second car. Things were looking up: Marsh made him a permanent employee on Sept. 10.

Not sure what to say?

We visited the pools last weekend whilst on a trip to New York and stood next to Carlos' name and found the time very moving therefore we wanted to pass on our condolences as behind every name is an ever flickering light full of memories x

This year marks the 15th anniversary of my husband's death. He lives on in the faces of his children. We will never forget! On August 20, 2017 his daughter Maria will be married. As I walk my daughter down the aisle, Carlos will be there in spirit looking down at her, as a very proud parent.

When 911 happened I was only 4 years old. Now it is 911's tenth anniversary. Honestly I don't remember hardly anything about that day, but over the past years I have learned about this devastating tragedy. It is horrible how so many hard working family men and women like you had to die like that. I can not even imagine what your family had to go through. However you, like the rest of the people who died on 911, will never be forgotten. In my opinion you are an American hero. Never forget...

When 9/11 happened, I was really young and I didn't even know much about it. This year was the 10th anniversary. Our school decided to plant flowers. We were given a slip with a person who passed away on 9/11 and wrapped the paper around the Iris seed. It makes me very sad that those people had to die that way. I feel sorry for the family and friends. It must be very heartbreaking that you lost a loved one that way. Carlos Domingues seemed like a hard working man that took very good care of...

I am very close to your family today, but I wish I got the chance to meet you. Never forgotten

The events of 9/11 have left a hole in my heart... something I may never get over. I remember hearing that Carlos was among those lost that day. So, of course, I wanted to acknowledge him after reading the April 3rd, 2011 Newsday article "9/11: A Decade Later."

Carlos assisted me in my video/photography business throughout the 80s and early 90s. I'm still in the business and I have to say, Carlos remains my favorite assistant (don't tell the others... LOL)!!! We spent...
