Reflections for Police Officer Daniel Howard Golden

We lost another HPD Officer. I’m sure you have already welcomed him with open arms.

Hey little brother, was thinking about you today and the time you scammed me on the cell phone. You had me going for quite a while. I still owe you for that.

We miss you, buddy...every day. You did a great job here. See you soon.

You were a good man and a good officer, Kelso. Know that you are remembered with love and respect and your family remains in our thoughts and prayers.

Justice is mine, saith the Lord, and your murderer is subject to His justice now. And that is precisely as it should be.

Rest in peace, Little Brother.

The coward that took your life also took his own life in the last final act of a true coward. He couldn't even take his true punishment like a man. His attorney had the gall to make the statement that he would be going to heaven to join you. We all know where he is going, straight to hell to reap his punishment for eternity. Rest in peach Kelso, we all miss you. God Bless.

Recently Deputy Ricky Del Fiorentino, Mendocino County Sheriff's Department was killed in the line of duty. Ricky's sister is a California Highway Patrol Dispatcher. As the commander of the Communications Center, I tried to provide as much comfort and assistance to his sister as I could. Ricky's funeral service was today. I talked to his sister, Debra, a bit today, and mentioned to her about the Peace Officer Memorial Ceremony in Washington, DC. That conversation brought back memories of my visit to DC back in 2006 to honor my friend, CHP Officer Andrew Stevens. And that is where I met the fine people from the Huntsville, Alabama, Police Department that were their to honor their friend, Officer Daniel Golden. I have not forgotten. And every time I hear Sweet Home Alabama I remember the night in the bar, everyone toasting Daniel, drinks held high, screaming out the lyrics at 0300 hours....

You are missed Daniel...and certainly never, ever forgotten.

Daniel, its hard to believe it will be 8 years on Thursday that you were taken from this earth. We still miss you every day and know you're watching down from above. Over the last couple years a few more brothers in blue have joined you and we know we will see you guys again one day. Just wanted you to know we were thinking about you brother.

We pass thru Golden Holler every chance we get. As we passed I did a double take at the American Flag, there I saw a small Police statue. I smiled, because I know what that stands for. Beside I saw a round reaf of blue & white flowers. I didn't realize that it was National Police Week. Thank you and all of your brothers for what you do.


May 21, 2013

Daniel, Just thinking about you brother. This is police week and although a day doesnt go by that you're missed, this week especially we're thinking about you and all your brothers and sisters who have given it all. I can still remember all the funny stories you would tell while we were working on the streets. Not a day goes by that we dont remember how you used to protect us and dared a patient to get mouthy or disrespectful on a scene. Never forget brother :)

It is hard to believe that it has been seven years. I will never forget the first time that Dee introduced you to me and Sonya. There you were in overalls and a white tee-shirt. I thought it was a joke. When I got to know you, I could see why Dee loved you. You were one of a kind. I will never forget that day or the look on your Dads face when he got to the ER. A lot has changed since that day. I now where that same uniform that you were so proud to wear. I thought of you often when I was in the academy and as I work the streets today. We love you. God be with your family.

Seven's seems like just yesterday. I miss you brother. We'll see each other again soon...I know you're in a better place and with those you love that have passed before and since...

your friend
