Very, very sad . . .

My dear wife, Lila -- the love of my life -- passed away early this morning, after a protracted illness. She died peacefully, at home, 77 years young.

Please indulge me as I go through a mourning process -- I will not be posting any cartoons or Caption Contests for a short period of time.

This is us in happier times:



Love you both.

You both look so happy.

I am so sorry for your loss. Lila has always been in my thoughts even though we didn't get to see her towards the end. I will always have fond memories

Sorry for your loss. Blessed Be

Our thoughts and deepest condolences on your loss of Lila, an amazing person inside and out who will be missed. She left a special legacy for you all to carry on in brighter days. Love, Paul, Kathy and Amanda

Our sincere condolences on the loss of your wife. Thoughts and Prayers are with you and your family at this time. May the memories you shared ease the pain in time. God Bless

My condolences, Eli.

My sincere thanks to all of you for your kind, compassionate words.

I will probably get back to my regular postings sometime next week.


Our deepest sympathy to you.

My caption for your posted picture of you and your wife:


Eli,Thinking about you and praying for your healing heart and peace of mind.

Sorry I didn't see the photo until today !-13. Judy and I loved Lila. We didn't see her much in the last number of years but we will miss her. You were a great couple.

After posting my entry for the wrong cartoon this morning, I just found your picture and words about Lila.I am very sorry being so late to respond to your loss but please accept our belated sorrow and best wishes. Ruth & Andrew

I'm much later to the news than my old friend Howard Garrett. but I share his sentiments entirely. Your loss is a terrible thing, but to have had what you had for so long is, yes, beautiful.
