I had the extraordinary privilege to work directly for Colonel Daniels while he was here at the 315th AMDS. He is an outstanding man and was a great mentor. I find my mind wandering back to the times when he was teaching me the ropes. I sorely miss him.

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort in Psalm 34:18. "God is close to the broken-hearted and saves those crushed in spirit. "Make God your comfort. He "heals the broken-hearted." Psalm 147:3 and provides "refuge and strength in times of distress." Psalm 46:1

I am so sorry to hear of Dr. Daniels passing. He treated me for years at the Raleigh VA. I always enjoyed our appointments and especially discussing our military careers. I have truly missed seeing him. He was a great man and will be greatly missed. May the Lord be with the family as you cope with this loss.
