Hi Danny, I did not wait this long to leave you a not by design but only because I just learned that it was possible. Thanks for all the good times you and all the Baker-1 crew gave me during our time together. I could never have hand picked a better bunch of young men to work with than we had in our team. I will never forget your dedication and loyalty not only to the WPD but to me as a supervisor at that time.

I always felt like we had lots of fun but always got the job done first and you and that crew did it in a very professional way. I tell the story often of the night at 21st. and Oliver when we had a large crowd on the parking lot. One of the people was a bit less than polite and respectful toward me and you put him on the hood of a patrol car so fast none of us had time to blink. I know the guy got the message. You were the best Danny and I miss you every day. I love you and RIP.
