Dominic Walker is my little brother. Today, we found him passed away after having been missing since Saturday. The investigation is ongoing, but for now, we have a responsibility. A responsibility to help him be remembered in the best way we can.
He was 16 years old. Born December 11, 2002.
He did have Aspergers as all the news reports said. But that didn’t define him. Yes, it was more of a challenge sometimes, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.
He loved movies and race cars. M&Ms and Kraft Mac and cheese and A&W root beer and Dominos pizza because it sounded like his name.
He was the best kid. And now he’ll never get the chance to experience life beyond our little town.
Our biological family was small. Just Dominic, my mom, and me. But my husband joined our little family. And he and Dominic were like best friends.
This campaign is in honor of my little brother. Dominic. Please share. Please donate if you’re financially able. Our family isn’t a wealthy one. But he deserves at least this to be nice. It’s the least we can do for him.
Hug your loved ones tighter. Give them all your love. Because I wanted nothing more than for him to be home and give him the biggest hug.
Any extra that is made will be given to my mom. She’s not been working of course, and unfortunately bills still pile up even though the world around us has come crashing down.
