I still remember that awful day almost 51 years ago - working in my kitchen with the radio on listening as the news reported the death of a highway patrol officer. I had a terrible vision of it being Danny but tossed it off saying it could not be him. Then my brother Buddy called and asked me if I had the radio on. I said oh no, is it Danny and he confirmed it was. I still miss him to this day - our family had recently reconnected to him again. What a loss. We miss you cousin Danny White.
