Dan: Each year, I mourn your loss on that terrible day. You were an awesome officer, a good friend, and a great dad to your girls. I remember you telling me that you had baked cookies for the PTA. You have never been forgotten by anyone who knew you. Although I later went back into Law Enforcement, at the time - I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that you (of all people) had lost your life. I turned my notice of resignation in and left two weeks later. Knowing you - you would have said that I should have just taken a vacation! I still miss your sense of humor.
