Excerpts from Brother Visitor’s Canonical Visit letter to Br. Dominic:
“I am very pleased to see you in good spirits when I visited you two weeks ago in Dasmariñas. I really like that sign on your pillow: “DAD. Adviser. Best Friend.” You have been exactly that to many of your former students and the other young Brothers whom you helped form in the past. I would need to go back to get a stuffed toy for myself!”
Eternal rest grant unto Dominic, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
