    Is this about Garry’s family?

    In the early days, Benjy was Mike’s little brother whose goal was to get into Harvard med school.

    Daisy is Mike & Benjy’s mom???

    I liked Mike’s Mom. She was a feisty old lady!

    Yes, Daisy is Mike’s mom, and Benjy (Sal) is Mike’s little brother. I can’t recall another death in the Doonesbury universe… GT must have taken a cue from Lynn Johnston.

    I wonder if the bikers will attend the funeral?

    I wonder why this comic was slow to get to this site. There were at least three other deaths in the Doonesbury Universe that I recall - Congresswoman (Senator?) Lacey, Mark’s father, and Andy (I think that was his name) in the ‘80’s.

    We have lost yet another grand ol’ dame. She will be missed…

    Trust me, at the reading of the will, Benjy will be there and wondering why he didn’t get it all. Division of the estate seems to have nothing to do with division of the labor in parent care.

    At least GBT has enough sense not to do a reboot like Funky. That’s hard enough to figure out.

    Or called every once in a while!!

    I don’t think there is much to the Will.

    What’s the old saying, ” money isn’t everything but it keeps the kids close.”??

    There have been the occasional deaths, as well as the 3 mentioned by jnik23260; Dick Davenport (Lacey’s husband) also passed away, mid panel as it were, photographing a ‘Bachman’s Warbler’. The Andy mentioned was Andy Lipincott, an old friend of Joanie’s who died from AIDs related complications.

    That’s Mike’s brother? I seem to recall another(?) brother who had the classic Mike nose that was quite a bit younger than Mike appearing during a sequence of strips when Mike was feeling old because the music he grew up with was now being played in elevators. The brother did little to help Mike out of his funk, disparaging Mike’s attempt to rock to, “Satisfaction,” by the Rolling Stones.
