Just looking at that sentence makes me tear up again.
Dominick Cole Bormann was born on 8-28-10 about 6 weeks early - he was kept in the NICU until last Sunday when he was finally allowed to join his family at home. This morning, a mere 6 days later, he passed away around 6am, most likely due to complications with his sleep apnea from having been born so early (although there is no official report yet).

I can't imagine how hard this is on them, especially with three other kids to think about... this tragedy runs deep and will follow them for the rest of their lives. I'm stuck here in Santa Barbara today feeling totally useless, so here is my attempt to help make their lives easier:
Since I've had a few people ask how they can help, I've created a Paypal donation account for Dominick's Memorial. The funeral costs will be about $600 and their little family was living on a shoestring budget as it is, so any donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated. Please click here if you wish to donate something to this fund (it's through PayPal so it's legit!):
