Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Daniel Browne-Sanchez

Happy Birthday Daniel.... 33 today! WOW! What might have you accomplished these past 5 years? I often wonder. You are loved and missed by by me and many others. Your life was well lived - You gave your life for others and that was the ultimate sacrifice. Be proud of yourself.

Hi Danny, I still remember when you came to my house in England, with your Mother and had dinner with us, and ended up eating all the chicken we had prepared for the next day ! Your poor mum was so embarrassed! I think at that time I was one of the first Police Officers you had met socially and like to think that I did , in some small way , help you decide on a career in the Service of others. That has so backfired. I still think of you I always had a dream of coming to Hawiai to meet you, especially after I moved ,I thought you would ask me where I had moved to and would reply in Hawaii 5 0 style 'Bookham,Danno' but htis was not to be. Glad to say that your Mum is visiting me again on Wed 9th May and we will be thinking of you again, she is doing well. We will even be having chicken again !

What’s up Dan?
I’m not sure if you can hear me, but I still hear you when I gaze upon your picture. I’ll always remember your greetings as I walk into the control room, “What’s up Finney”. Those words will remain with me for the rest of my life as only you could say them. So, now, I say to you, “What’s up Dan”? You did what many others would not do….., you sacrificed what many others would not sacrifice………, Your great deeds will live on with the department and in the memories of those who knew you forever.

Hi Danny...
I really miss you... There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you... I still pick up the phone and dial your number. I wish things were different, that you were still here. There's so much to tell you and I can't. You're not here anymore.. :( I could always tell you everything and although you'd tell me if I was being stupid you still wouldn't judge my choices. The best friend anyone could ever have and always there... No matter what... Love you Danny....

Hi Danny,

June 11, 2011 - Happy Birthday Daniel. You are 32 years old. WOW! I miss you and a day does not go by without thoughts of you and what might have been. But I also remember what your life WAS. Full of care and ambition - you protected your friends with your life. The ultimate sacrifice. Your life was well lived. I am proud of you! Always loving you. MOM

Daniel I miss you. I still look for you in the photos your friends post on F.B. You are not there. I wonder what you might be doing in your life today as some of your friends marry and have children. I wish you could have experienced those joys. I know you wanted so much - you gave everything.
Love you - Mom.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 4th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you, especially your mother, for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

Hey Danny,
I miss you like crazy... There's no one like you to talk to about anything and everything every day. Just to cause trouble to or to tease a little.. I waited too long and that was my fault. Now nothing is the same. I still dial your number whenever something happens that I know would make you laugh. I miss you at our birthday. Things are just really different now and not really in a better way. Some days are better than others. Love you and Miss you Danny...

Hey Dan,
Still missing you...Still have the impulse to call you when something is going down. When I'm pissed off and hurting. When I'm happy and overjoyed. When something super hilarious happens and I just need to share it with someone I want to laugh with me. You know, just like old times.
Every now and then, my son does something and I can't help but think you are influencing him somehow. Just like you used to say you would. Igniting that kolohe spark.
Miss you laugh. Miss your shoulder. Miss sharing books. Miss you lots even after all this time.

Hey Brother, another year has passed and I've been blessed with having the chance to come and see your name on the wall in Washington D.C. What a truly somber place to be honored amongst all the other fallen brothers and sisters who were taken from their earthly service. The memorial is an incredible place and so fitting for your memory. Your mom is such a warrior like you Danny, still battling the state in your memory, so others who may fall in the future may never relive the nightmare that she still does; yes politics.....Can't believe it's been three years, things will never be the same again. Miss you brother.

Dear Mrs. Browne,

I am truly sorry for your loss. I apologize because I just found out about Danny today. I wanted to tell you about when I first met Danny. He was barely 21, he used to come to Big D's for pau hana with the rest of the Aloha Air guys. I was a waitress, and Danny was one of my Friday night regulars.

I'm not shocked about what Danny did. He always watched out for us. Back in those days, he may have been the "baby" because he was so young, but I always appreciated what a caring person he truly was. I enjoyed Danny's company both while I was working and even on my days off when we could just hang out.

I fondly remember Danny always kept an eye on us just to make sure that everything was "cool". He was the first one to step up and make sure that I was okay if anyone ever got out of hand.

Even back in those days, I knew Danny never just acting like a hero. It was his nature, and he always did the right thing. You raised him to be a good man.

I can see that he was destined to be a Sheriff, to protect those who needed protection. I'm so very sorry that Danny was taken from you. You and Danny are in my prayers. I will never forget what an great man and a true friend he was and will always be.

Hey Dan,

We spoke about you today. Your brothers in patrol still remember the good times. You were the one that told me I spelled frijole wrong, man that was funny. You always got the job done no matter what.......all the way till the end. Gone but never forgotten.

Forgive me for missing the anniversary of your E.O.W., but I felt as though I could not continue to read about so many tragedies. I now realize the visit each day to leave a word of encouragement and hope to the loved ones of others, helps me to remember that I am not alone with my pain and heartbreak. So may I say to your friends and loved ones that my thoughts and prayers are with them now and always. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol and may they know you will never be forgotten.
