    i send my apologies. i believe he was a good person, and was good at his job. and even if he was drunk at the time, it doesn't change the fact that he will be missed.

    I saw Dan 20 minutes before he died, he was putting a report into firehouse and was going home to see his family for Christmas, he was definitly not drunk how could anyone even think that. RIP Dan

    Another example of why FH should not restrict the bumping of old threads.

    If anyone bitches about THIS thread being resurrected they should be ashamed of themselves, as it is a brother remembering his brother. Even though it's a year and a half late, I'm sorry for your loss fyerfytr.

    Sleep with angels, Dan You won't ever be forgotten. I've learned that much about your Brotherhood.
