May Danny’s family find comfort in the fact that Danny was a good honest cop who was well liked and respected by all who knew him, both as a street cop and detective. Not only was he a good cop, but a loyal friend. I liked going on extraditions with Danny. I enjoyed his company and he had a sense of humor. He always took it well when I teased him about being a “Dan Aykroyd look alike.” Rest in peace Danny. See you on the other side.
