POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 20, 2014 Page5 The Power of Caring A Frank De Pasquale Venture by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari We are exhorted by the Bible to love our neighbor as ourselves, a seemingly easy request to follow, one that will bring happi- ness to its practitioners but too often is ignored. This past weekend we participated in a happy event that demonstrated the power and wisdom contained in this simple exhortation. We were invited to a wedding of a family member in New York, it was an occasion we looked forward to, happy to share in the memorable event of family members close to our hearts. Right from the beginning the attention paid to details was obvious. Although it would be a large wedding with many guests invited, you felt that you were being considered individually. Directions, menu selections and dietary concerns, seating arrangements seemed tailored to you individually, not an easy thing to accomplish considering the size of the guest list. It was obvious that a tremendous amount of time and caring went into the preparations leading up to the wedding. The day of the wedding was bright and sunny, a welcomed relief from the stormy weather of the previous day. We arrived at the church and once again everything seemed to be well prepared. The ceremony was lovely, the bride beautiful and the groom beaming, it was as it should be, a very happy and memorable occasion. The reception following the wedding once again gave ample evidence of the caring that went into the wedding plans. A delight- ful cocktail hour held on the country club&apos;s terrace followed by a sumptuous din- ner with food selection responding to every taste. Finally there was the music, a true blast, it was so good that the impossible happened, we were both lured to the dance floor where we had fun dancing with our cousins who are marvelous dancers. Reflecting on the past weekend, now that we are back in Boston, it is easy to see the time and caring that went into the wedding plans and the obvious care and love that permeated the preparations. Borrowing from the title of the classic movie, it was "An Affair to Remember" made memorable through the power of caring.

Dom has volunteered as a coach and mentor for over 50 years. This past year he has stopped doing the clinic pro- gram for health reasons. Personally, Dom was my coach in Babe Ruth and also was an opposing coach when I was in Little League, he is a great man and poured his heart and soul into baseball over the years and also truly cared deeply for all of the kids he taught. Dom touched the lives of tons of kids from the neigh- borhood and it would be great if people could stop by to say hello and share in this honor for such a great person. -- John Romano East Boston Chamber of Commerce Please join the East Boston Chamber of Commerce, East Boston Main Streets and Rep.
