“It is with a most heavy heart that I bring you the news of my dear friend’s passing. Domineque passed away on April 9th, 2014 after complications brought on by Lupus. Though she was a long-time sufferer of this disease, her condition turned for the worst in recent months with her kidneys functioning at a terribly low rate. Tragically, Domineque fell unconscious the night of April 7th but thankfully her amazing partner was there by her side to perform CPR and call 911. Domineque was placed on life support and was not able to breathe on her own. At 12:30pm, on April 9th, after having suffered a heart attack, she passed away. She was 27 years old.This is a truly difficult time for her spouse, family, and friends– it is beyond surreal and heartbreaking to write what has transpired. I have set up this fundraiser to help with both the funeral and cremation costs. We sincerely thank you for your help, it is humbly appreciated.”
I did not know Domineque in person nor did I even know her real name (I called her LongHairDontCare), but I loved her videos and watched every one she published. When I found out she had died at the unbelievably young age of 27 I cried, not because I knew her in person, but because she made me feel like I did by sharing her life, tips and talents online all these years. Strangely I cried for knowing I’d never get to meet her in person. I’m thankful for the HUGE impact she was able to make in a life that ended much too soon. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
Rest In Peace Domineque, thank you for sharing your life with us. ❤
