One of the saddest and biggest posts I ever blogged about on this site came on the heels of the news that Jubar Croswell, who I and many friends of mine all knew familiarly as “Esco”, had been found dead on the side of a wooded area in New Jersey a year and a half ago.

An overflow of comments flooded this blog from his close family and friends sharing their memories and giving thanks for this blog shedding light on the tragedy.
