I am struggling to find the words to Express how sorry I am. I know how much I am struggling to come to terms with this. I wish I could say or do something to help make it easier for the family. I miss Dom so much already. I know that he is up there looking down on us. I wish I could talk to him one more time. Or go back to July and get another hug. I'm sorry for your loss
