      I thank God for the blessing to have served with you twice! In Norfolk and San Diego,
      The USS Puget Sound AD-38 and the USS McKee AS41. We had the best of times! I remember when my daughter was little she would always say; “I want to be tall like auntie Dominique”, well she grew to be 6″ feet tall… lol

    My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with Dominique’s daughter and family during this difficult time. I saw her about a month ago and we laughed and talked. I had no idea that moment would be my last time ever seeing her again. She will be truly be missed!

      To the family, I’m so sorry for your Loss. Dominique was a dear friend of mine, my Shipmate. Dominique I’m sorry I couldn’t keep in touch. You were my first friend on the Yellowstone. We had lots of fun partying at Langley AF, etc.. I learned that you don’t have to see or talk to someone for them to remain in your heart. Even though I missed you before you passed, it hurts because I feel no closure but I know your heart was good and you understood. I pray that everyone keep in touch and hug your loved ones as much as possible. I know you Dominique is going to rest in peace, I don’t have to tell you that. Hooyah! Angel
