I just finished reading Brett Smith's thoughtful story on Danny Hamel in the August issue... and I cried like a baby. Well done! It was a very worthy tribute to a larger-than-life individual. Danny was inducted posthumously into the AMA Hall of Fame in 2013. There wasn't a dry eye in the house.

Jim Williams (of the AMA)

Thank you very much for the feedback, Jim. I'm glad you were touched by the story and I appreciate you letting us know that you approve. Truth be told, it was an emotional day in the office when we were circulating that layout before the final version went off to the printer. Brett Smith knocked it out of the park, and I think that we're all happy to see Danny's story get the press and play that it deserves. The AMA video is incredible as well! —Chris Denison
