DOMINICK KECK PASSES AWAY: Little boy visited Petting Farm, had day declared in his honor

Dominick Keck, the little boy who wanted so badly to visit the animals at the Heritage Park Petting Farm, has passed away.

Details are forthcoming.

Keck, who was gravely ill, told his family that he wanted the Petting Farm donkey to visit his home in Taylor. After finding out about the situation, Mayor Rick Sollars couldn't bring the donkey to Dominick, so he did the next best thing and reopened the Petting Farm for a special visit from Dominick and his friends. A special "Dominick Keck Day" was also proclaimed by the City Council.
