Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for August 17, 1997
Lacey: I wish you were here to help me, dear heart, I really do. I'm not very good at this. Pain I could handle, as you know. I come from sturdy stock. It's the loss of dignity I find so perfectly dreadful! I envy you your quick exit, Dick dear. I wish we could have gone together. That would have been grand! Dick: It wasn't your time, Lacey. Don't be in such a hurry. You still have so much to live for... Jeremy: Lacey? Lacey: Yes, dear? Jeremy: Want me to join the conversation? I don't mind. Lacey: No need, dearest - we're fine.
