Remembering Carolyn Kelly
I highly recommended, sadly, that you read Mark Evanier's profoundly lovely remembrance of Carolyn Kelly, the daughter of cartoonist Walt Kelly, creator of the legendary Pogo comic strip, and a cartoonist in her own right, as well as the driving force behind an acclaimed book series of his collective works.
Mark has a skill I'm sure he wishes he didn't have to use often, and that's writing such impressive tributes to people when they pass away. Making Mark's tribute here for Carolyn all the more moving is that, as he puts it, for the past 20 years she was the woman in his life.
I met Carolyn a few times, not many, but it was enough to know that everything Mark says about how lovely she was is not from his personal bias, but utterly true.
You can read it here.
