  1. One of my favorite memories of Dominic was when Loren was an infant. We visited Grandpa and Grandma in Mission Viejo. Grandpa swooped him up and sat Loren on his knee, bouncing him up and down and singing a little ditty over and over again. It was so cute!! I’d never seen that side of him before. He was a fun Granpa!

    And then there was the straightening up the forest…
