    I thought it was an arc to remind us of the Greatest Generation. I understand now. Excellent.

    I am surprised he could do this strip so soon after loosing his grandfather, I get misty eyed just reading it. To have thought it out with the lead times involved, it is amazing work.

    Maybe Roscoe will be Coach Wooden’s assistant. Coach Wooden had his rolled up program and Roscoe his newspaper.

    Read your blog post a few days ago about your grampa, Mr. Bell, and cried, and just now did all over again. Tears of joy and weeping for the loss and the good example to all of us. Wishing you and your family all the best.

    Sportymonk: It depends a lot on the individual survivor. I played Just a Closer Walk with Thee at my mother’s funeral. Some have asked that same question in that regard. If you really believe the Gospel, it isn’t hard, it’s almost mandatory.

    I am very sorry for your loss. I wish I could have had the opportunity to meet your grandfather although, in some ways it feels like I have. What a wonderful tribute to a man for whom you obviously had a great deal of love and respect. Thank you for sharing him with us.

    Thank you. Your grandfather was truly a great man. It was nice to read how he had the people he loved around him when he passed. Not every grandchild would help out like that. You are honoring your grandfather’s memory.

    I have breezed through the comments. Came here because the name of the veteran eluded me until today. Darrin, I am so sorry for your loss and cried for you tonight. May he rest in peace and may you be at peace. I loved the strip this week and will now go and try to find your blog to read. (I don’t often come to the comments here as I have my favorites e-mailed to me and just read there…) Again, my condolences.

    I am sorry for your loss, but rejoice that you had the gain of the relationship with him. And congratulations on your impending marriage. And I am also glad that he was able to have his companion there as well.

    I am late saying this, but the tribute to your Grandfather was one of the most moving pieces I’ve ever seen. It was wonderfully done.
