This is my first message.
To Danny's family, my deepest sympathy. I worked with Danny for a number of years, while he was in the Detention Dept.(the Sheriff read my evaluation during the services) he was a pleasure to work with. He always had a smile on his face (even at 3am) when I conducted rounds in his unit. He proudly spoke of his family, his love for his son and how proud he was of his mother.
I recall the day he was accepted to the road and how excited and happy he was. He lived life on his own terms and died doing something he enjoyed. I wish we could all say that one day!
