Don’t go! I grew up with Cathy and I will miss her. She was like a friend you called and talked for hours with, or went out for coffee with. I moved abroad twenty years ago and after about five years I missed my dose of Cathy and purchased all the Cathy book collections to get caught up. Then came GoComics and I could follow her and Irving every day. Heaven for me. Truly. Thank you Ms. Guisewite for giving us a daily companion many of us could relate to. Maybe you could update us every now and then on how it’s going with Cathy, Irving and the family?
I too did not see this coming. I read this last strip, took a deep breath and cried. I know these people. I’m glad the strip ended on a happy note, but it’s hard to say goodbye. Your family got me through some hard times in my life and my family’s life. Always real, honest, loving approaches to all of life. Thank you Lynn from the bottom of my heart, for sharing your life with us. God bless.
