I knew from the start that taking the risk of creating an honest, reality-based comic strip meant that I would be exposing the good, bad and indifferent about myself, my life and those around me whose lives I cherish, including illness and death. Not always funny but always real. My opportunities to bring Ginger to the comics pages on a daily basis, sharing her with all of you, will never be forgotten. Nor will the overwhelming amount of thoughts and prayers I have received from around the world in these past few weeks.

I can't thank you all enough for adoring her as I did. May she rest in Peace.

In memory of Ginger, please give generously to one or all of these fine charities:
