An anniversary mass and walk will be held Monday for the 6-year-old hero who died last year when he saved his sister’s life in a horrific attack.
Dominick Andujar died on Sept. 2 as he tried to defend his 12-year-old sister against a knife-wielding intruder. The man turned the knife on Dominick, slicing his throat and leaving him dead. But Dominick gave the man enough of a struggle that his sister Amber was able to escape and survive.
The last year has been a rollercoaster of emotions for the family. On March 18, Dominick’s family took pizza and cake to the cemetery where he is buried and held a birthday party for him under rain and ice. Dominick would’ve turned 7 that day.
Domick’s mom Debbie Burgos just this month returned to work. It was a tough summer.
