Re "A friend long gone, but never forgotten" (Dan Morain, March 30): Though two years ahead of me at Rio Americano High School, Rocky Cole was a campus icon whose smile was known by everyone. His friend's enduring efforts amaze me.
Dan Morain's article reminds me, early on a Sunday morning, of life's inspiring symbols and actions. While essays on national, state and local matters have their place, in the end, readers' hearts lie in the local human community. Please run more Sunday pieces that propel us into the upcoming week.
