Hey Dan,

It's been 23 years since we lost you. I talked to you last at the IHOP off green river drive, Corona. We talked about your transfer to Pomona PD and how my FTO program was going at the sheriffs department. My wife said it was not like me to let my food get cold. A few days later, God called you home. I'll never forget the fun times we had at the sheriffs department before you transferred to Pomona. Rest easy, friend.
