Reflections for Sergeant Danny Wilson

Danny Boy, I often think of you and all the laughs we shared. I miss you so much and wish that you were still here. I miss being able to talk to you about so many things. You truly meant a lot to me, and I will forever hold a special place in my heart for you. You told me once that you will always care for me because I have been nothing but nice to you, I can still see the look on your face when you said those words to me....I just want you to know that I havent forgotten you, and there isnt a day that passes that you dont cross my mind. I miss you like crazy and will never forget you. I am glad that you knew how much I cared, and that you made sure I knew just how much you cared.....You are truly missed.....

You have not been forgotten and are a true hero. My thoughts are with your loved ones on this 3rd anniversary of your end of watch. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol watching over the Thin Blue Line.

I often think of the first time I met you. You sat directly in front of me and flashed the biggest smile I have ever seen, needless to say, I was hooked. We shared many great memories, and although in the end we chose to remain friends, I want you to know that I will always hold a special place in my heart for you. I will never forget you, Danny Boy, and one of these days, I will get to see that awesome smile again...until then, I know that you are watching over your loved ones, and we can all rest a little easier knowing that you are now a "GUARDIAN ANGEL"

To Danny and his family. My thoughts and prayers have been with you for the last year and few months. It was a privilage to have had the oportunity to have worked with you in the Dept. I could always depend on Danny being there on any call. After leaving the Department I smiled when I learned that Danny had gotten my Sargent's slot. He deserved it and served well. He was a dedicated officer to the dept. and his fellow officers. His smile and dedication will be missed. Rest in Peace Danny and thanks for the memories. i wish i could have been there by your side. Continue smilling in heaven I know you are.

Eternally and Always

I didn't get to say goodbye
You're gone without a reason why
I've loved you all of my life
and then you weren't there

I didn't get a chance to say
how much I cared
I can't even remember the tears
that I cried
All I really wanted was to tell you

When I last saw you I felt I wouldn't
see you again
There was a distance between us
that I couldn't explain
You wouldn't look
at me but I could see the tears
in your eyes
If you knew then
You should have told me
Then I could have said

So many words left unspoken
So many hearts left so broken
My love for you is forever
And that will never die
We'll be together always
Our souls are one with God
Eternally and Always
I'll never have to say

SSG Wilson will always be remembered by those that served with him in Alpha Company, and those that went with him to NTC in California. The world is a darker place without SSG Wilson's personality, wisdom, and knowledge. You are missed, Danny. I know you're with God and may he bless your loved ones. Hooah.

Danny boy, I just found out about this site and as I sit here looking at your picture three things weigh on my mind. The first is the first time I met you. You were getting out of #23 at the jail for shift change; I was at the jail preparing for my first day on the road. I asked who's smiley? Chris said thats Danny boy, he's a good cop you'll be glad he's on your side. For the next two years I learned just how good of a cop you were! No matter what the situation was I knew I could count on you. The second thought is the gut wrenching feeling I got when I recieved the phone call telling me of the incident you and Donnie were in. I felt so helpless being halfway across the state and unable to be at my friends side when they needed me the most. The third is the last time I talked to you; we talked about how long it would be before I got my transfer back home and you said well hurry up we need to get back to our "cops and robbers". I've made it back home since then. A year is fast approaching and it feels as if we just went through this horrible experience. Your smiling face is sorely missed around Abbeville County! but your sacrifice has not been made in vain. Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God.

Danny Boy,
It has been almost a year since you were taken away from us, but it seems like just yesterday, you walked in with your smiling face with sodas in hand for us, because that was you, selflessly giving, wanting nothing in return. Oh, what I would give to see you and hear your laughter just one more time! I loved you like a brother and miss you so much that sometimes it physically hurts. Keep watch on me and everyone else that you loves Danny Boy. I'll see you in heaven one day!!! You are gone, but NEVER will you be forgotten!!!!!!!

Danny, I will miss seeing you on patrol in the Sumter National Forest. You were always friendly and helpful to me and never hesitated to assist me in any way. I think about you often and I pray for your family. Until the day comes when we can meet again, rest easy my brother.

most people would tell you that law enforcement is a dangerous job. i never listened. I was always afriad when there was a domestic call or when i heard dispatch say use caution with someone. My husband was a little man but his size never mattered to him. He wanted to be a policeman, he wanted to make the small town we lived in a safe place for everyone. i never thought that directing traffic would be the worst thing that he could do. I just want to say to all the officers that read this "To be careful out there and watch out for other drivers and be careful so you can go home to your family" GOD BLESS

A Brother Warrior has fell and died today in battle.

This Brother Warrior has made the ultimate sacrifice.

He has given his life for his Fellow Warriors, his family and friends too.

Brother Warrior, pass your sword to us, so we can keep your spirit alive.

You, my Brother Warrior will not be forgotten.

God Bless you, your family and your friends.

We honor and respect all of the Fallen Warriors who have gone before us.

We ask you, Brother Warriors to guide us, protect us and pray for us.

We will meet again my Brother Warriors.

For this time not to fight another battle, but to live in eternal peace.

God bless all of the Warriors, past, present and future.

They say that a man's wealth is not measured in money, but in the number of friend's he has. I see that you are one of the richest. May God Bless you and may he keep your family in his gentle embrace. I believe that there are angels among us and hope you will be watching over us from your heavenly beat. We'll take it from here. Rest easy brother

My thoughts and prayers go to the Wilson family, and to his fellow Officers. I know what it is like to lose a brother Officer to a senseless act of violence. Wilson's loss will be felt by the entire Law Enforcement community in this nation.
