To Mr.Fraembs Family,

I remember cheering and being happy that this man died. I grew up being part of the Happy Town street gang. My friend's older brother killed him....We all cheered. I am now a Marine Gunnery Sergeant and I look back at this memory of me being a stupid brainwashed kid and I'm disgusted at myself that I was ever a part of that lifestyle. I'm so sorry for the family. I apologize from the bottom of my heart. This man is my brother for life and I didn't even know it at the time. Semper Fidelis Daniel T. Fraembs! See you on post.

Danny. I attended a fellow brother's funeral this week. Driving through Pomona's streets lined with folks and city personnel paying tribute to Greggory brought back that same deep ache I felt the day we honored you. I shall never forget all the many kindnesses you showed me and the story you shared about your humble beginnings on that beach in Korea. I think of you often and carry your promise to me .... "forever protected, never indebted" ..... Rest in God's grace. With much affection, Dems

Only two years on as a San Gabriel Police Officer, I attended your funeral services (1996) - first of many follow. Officer Fraembs, I did not know you and never had a chance to work with you - but it was an honor to have attended your service. Vividly, I remembered having a strong connection and emotion when I rendered a Marine's final salute to you, in front of your casket. Looking at your peaceful face, I saw me: we have strong resemblance back then. My heart ached for your family, friends, and fellow officers - shed tears for my fellow brother in blue and green (USMC) who I never knew and wished that I did.

And now, 22 years later - my heart ached again hearing your Pomona brother, Officer Greggory Casillas, had also paid the ultimate sacrifice (03/09/18) and his partner, Officer Alex Nguyen (who had paid tribute to you as a police cadet), was also wounded.

Thank you for your sacrafice and dedicated service, still remembered seeing your face that day - you will never be forgotten. Ever.

Semper Fi, brother.

Dan,

I remember and understood your humor those days working Intake at OCSD. I waited for the day you would rip out some crooks heart and show it to him before he dropped. It didn't happen because you were that "courageous calm" we learned about in the academy. Still remember and think about you all these years later.

Dan, Thinking of you again, and missing you. I played Dan Fogelberg and Olivia Newton-John songs in your honor.

I miss you greatly, think of you often, talk to you occasionally, and will see you again sooner than later.

As any Boy Scout would understand: "You left this campsite in much better condition than you found it in".

Please give my Mattie a hug, and help him when he needs it.

Love you & miss you. Prayers to your family. God Bless,
Greg

Dan,

I write this shortly after 20th anniversary of your crossing. You were my best friend when we attended the University of Cincinnati. I learned of your murder in 2002 when I tried to find you again on the internet. The world lost a good soul and my friend when you crossed-over. Several days ago, I heard an Olivia Newton-John song on the radio, and immediately thought of you. I miss you greatly, think of you often, talk to you occasionally, and will see you again sooner than later.

As any Boy Scout would understand: "You left this campsite in much better condition than you found it in".

Please give my Mattie a hug, and help him when he needs it.

Love you & miss you. Prayers to your family. God Bless,
Greg

Worked for me at Orange County SO. Saved my ass and my eye sight one night dealing with a 5150. It was an honor to have worked with Dan and he will always be in my thoughts and prayers to his family.

I will never forget you my brother. You showed great courage everyday, and you were a great officer and friend. It is hard to believe it has been twenty years. I also am honored to still know your family, who has shouldered such a heavy burden, and carried it with dignity and honor.

Not a day goes by without thinking of what an incredible person and true friend you were. I feel truly fortunate to have known you in that capacity. From our days at OCSO to the streets of Pomona, I will forever cherish those incredible memories.

I did the memorial programs for your service, and watched as the procession wound its way to Forest Lawn Cemetery. You were an inspiration to your brother and sister officers, and sorely missed by all who knew you and loved you. Rest well, brother!

I never met you but attended your funeral. I was an investigator with the LA DA's Office assigned to our Pomona Office at that time. Some of DA staff that knew you and I shed a few tears at your service. I attend as many funerals of downed officers to pay respect to that officer and strengthen my resolve to do the job we do. I recently drove by Humane Way the site of your murder. I'm a supervisor now and my team has been working with your agency on a gang/crime suppression sweep. We're doing our part in your city to finish the job you started. "Never Forget," God bless you and your families sacrifice.

Cpl Fraembs, every time I walk past my Gun Cabinet I see you face, and get a good salt water wash down of the ole eye balls. RIP Brother, I think it's time I get your Rifle to Onslow Beach...I'll bury her deep with the help of your old Team Members.

I wish everyone would contact me about Cpl. Danny Fraembs. Second Recon Team Leader, Company A, 1st Platoon, 2nd Reconnaissance Btn., 2d Marine Division, United States Marine Corps. Including his mother and sister.

I have many funny stories to share that he would not like, but would laugh about now, in Heaven. I just heard 19 may 2012.

I would enjoy telling you great stories of Dan from the past.

I can't stop crying. Love you man.
