Dominic is the founder of sudSSpirit, a bereavement support group for the sudden unexpected death of a spouse or significant other that meets regularly.
The group is also open to those that lost a spouse, partner, engaged, living together but not married who have lost the love of their life through a disease or terminal illness.
Dominic has published books based on life experiences, and he continues to write grief related, self-help, and inspiring articles for other publications and his own newsletter.
A third book is expected to be published early 2024 titled – Life Changes While Grieving: Three significant changes. One ultimate outcome. A concise hybrid of combining the best reflections he wrote in the first book with the abbreviated grief timeline from the second book and then adding his thoughts about how his life has changed from this experience.
