To the Baker family, fellow deputies , and all who call Daniel beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith.

It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.
