Danny Aiello. He always did the right thing. He was my true pal.

Danny was a person  I could count on. When I needed him to talk to kids he was always there. When I did my animated film "Henry & Me" Danny portrayed the doctor.

When my play "Batboy" opened, Danny was front-row-center.

Danny was Hollywood royalty but he never forgot where he came from. He made me feel proud that I was born in the Bronx. Just this week, talks were in progress about Danny doing another film. He was a very young 86 years old. I will miss him forever.

Like Mr. Steinbrenner, Billy Martin, and Mr. Sinatra, Danny made you feel as special as he was.

Danny was a big time Yankee fan. He attended many games during the course of the season.

Let me add that he was very proud of his nephew, Michael Kay, The Great Yankee announcer. He was a baseball fan to the core. When he wasn't working, he was always watching the YES network or listening to Michael Kay on radio.

To me, great entertainers like Danny are supposed to live forever. I'm sorry that I didn't get to say goodbye.

Danny Aiello, thanks for doing the right thing.
