    Mom deserves a bigger tombstone. I love little Ishy in the last panel.

    This really shows how much little kiddoes feel when they lose a mom (or dad)…Lio always remembers his mom. Little Squiddy wins the empathy award….aaaahhhhh.

    Awww [sniff]. How does this strip managed to be cute and creepy at exactly the same time?

    That’s Lio’s mother’s grave. So far this has been a mystery for sometime. How did she died?

    It’s amazing. Every time Mom shows up in this strip, someone starts peeling onions nearby.

    I don’t think @invisible meant it maliciously. He/she was just following a line of thought

    Our friends and family are always in our hearts and minds. Graves are just places that contain empty shells.

    That’s why I love this strip, it can be sweet and funny with a little creepy on the side, all at once. It’s very rare to find true talent in this world, keep it up Mr. Tatulli.
