So so sad to hear of the loss of our Uncle Dom. Some of my best childhood memories are of sitting around my parents' dining room table while they played poker or pokeno with Uncle Dom, Aunt Grace, Aunt Betty & Uncle Jimmy...always so hilarious with their stories, jokes & general b.s.-ing! Our prayers are with you all now, and may you find comfort in the knowledge that he and Aunt Grace are reunited at last. Much much love...The Munger Family

A great man that raised a wonderful daughter, and molded a great grandson. Such a family guy that always watched out for the ones he loved. Some of us can only wish we had the closeness with our family that he had with his loved ones. Rest in peace Pop, you will be sadly missed.

Donna, Joe and Families,
He was loved by so many... more than you or he will ever know...

At this time of sorrow, may these truths sustain you:
Uncle Dom will always be as close as a memory,
and the God of all comfort will always be as
close as a prayer.

Much love,

Mike, Donna, Frank, Friends and family,

I am truly sorry for your loss. He was a great person and an amazing grandfather. I always looked forward to visiting him with Michael. He always had a great story or an amazing one liner that would have me laughing for days. I know he will never be that far away. He lives on in your hearts and especially in you Mike. It was hard to tell where he ended and you began sometimes.

I offer you my condolences and support should you need it. Rest in Peace Mr. Martino. I look forward to seeing you again one day.

I am at a loss of words, all I know is that he is in a better place, with no more pain and suffering. I will keep him in my memory forever. It seems that our parents are taken from us much too soon. Keep in mind that you were there for him from beginning to end. His memory will help you through this most difficult time. With love & deepest sympathy, Jackie & family

I've seen how difficult the last months have been for you. I can't imagine what you're going through right now. Know that Randy and I are thinking of you and I hope you can find some measure of peace soon.
