My name is James Cassell. I am sad to see that Roger Crona has died (“Roger Crona (Or Was it Jason von Straussenburg?) Dies at 62,” Daily Nexus, Mar. 5). He was a good friend of mine from age 6 to age 18, when we lost track of each other. We shared many good times together, the likes of which you can only experience when you’re that age.

Somehow I always thought we might meet up again, someday, maybe later. For now, part of my childhood is gone, and I have no one to share those memories with. Roger was a good friend.

James Cassell is from Birmingham, Mich.
