Mondays and Fridays
My hero, everyday

Sorry to announce this -- the comic will be taking a brief hiatus.  My wife Joan took a sudden turn for the worse and passed away on Sunday morning.  I'm going to be spending the next couple of weeks taking care of personal business.

The character of Joan Generic (based on real-life Joan) will still appear in the comic occasionally.  I've already got a lot of the story plotted out, and she has a small but important part to play.

If you would like to do something in her honor, please make a contribution to the American Cancer Society.  Thanks.

"And each one there
Has one thing shared:
They have sweated beneath the same sun,
Looked up in wonder at the same moon,
And wept when it was all done
For being done too soon." --N. Diamond

Oh, Ed, I'm so sorry.  I can't imagine what that would feel like.  If you ever need something, we're all here for you.

Tom Chappell (tomhcinmi) says:

I am very sorry.  She was only my little brother's age.

My daughter's mother passed away suddenly and unexpectedly recently -- January 2013 is still recent to us.

I don't know how long it takes to recover; I guess it depends on what you call "recovery".  I can sympathize, but (as far as I know) I can't help.
