Domingues Disney World Vacation

On January 21, 2014 the world lost a man who can be described as divine, João "Johnny" Domingues passed away at the early age of 37. Johnny was an incredible human being who genuinely appreciated life. He was a sincere friend to all, possessing an extraordinary ability to forge lasting relationships with people from the moment he met them. Johnny was a shining light of positivity in all of our lives; quick to smile and laugh he was a person you always wanted to be around. Willing to fulfill a favor he was the type of guy you could rely upon. Intelligent, bright, dynamic, confident, witty, humorous, charming, compassionate, good-looking, stylish, nicest shoes in the room, enthusiastic, upbeat, agreeable, cooperative, loyal, trust-worthy, kind-hearted, thoughtful, generous, the type of person who would do anything for anyone, friendly, fun to be around, likeable, likeable, likeable,!!! Simply put, he was "The Man." His only flaw in life was his undying love for the Dallas Cowboys, aside from that he was a winner in every sense of the word, a person we all strive to be like. They say when great men pass away their chapter is not torn out of the book but rather cemented for all to remember, acknowledge and admire. In the spirit of Johnny, who made it a tradition to grace everyone with quotes for the holidays, "Some are bound to die young: if he burns brightly before he dies, his brightness shines for all time." We were all undoubtedly blessed to have Johnny in our lives, he shines on in all of us as he certainly will never be forgotten.

The purpose of this email is to do something special and meaningful for Johnny. Above all else, Johnny's family was first and foremost in his life. He was an endearing and devoted husband to the love of his life Debbie and a dedicated and proud father to his two beautiful children, Gisele and Dylan. As the consummate family man there were so many great vacations spent with his loved ones, however one voyage on his bucket list which he did not get the chance to fulfill was to take his children to experience the magic of Disney World. As a gift, we would like to present the Domingues family with an all-expenses paid vacation to Disney World. We have the opportunity to carry out one of Johnny's wishes. Seeing the smiles of Gisele and Dylan as their fairytale dreams come true with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and the rest of the Disney characters will unquestionably deliver great joy to Johnny up above, he will forever be grateful that we were able to put this together for his beloved family.

Sincerest thank you for helping deliver this special gift.
