I have to say that seeing this comic strip end is very sad for me. A few years ago my aunt, also named Kathy (but with a “K”) passed away at a young age from a very quick heart attack in the middle of the night. Cathy was always her favorite comic and she read it every day. I myself have only read it occassionally until my aunt had passed. That was when I had started reading it very frequently because it helped me to keep her memory alive. Seeing Cathy end is like saying goodbye to my Aunt all over again. I wish the cartoonist Cathy a wonderful retirement and I thank her for many years of comfort after my aunt’s passing. Thank you Cathy and may God bless you as he has our family with having my Aunt Kathy be a part of it as your Cathy has also been.
