Sorry this is a heavy post/comic but I had to get it out of me
My friend Emily died very suddenly this week. I met her in 6th grade. We stayed at the same neighbor’s house after school and rode the same bus. We fell into the same circle of friends in high school and were in touch off and on through college and afterward. She was one of the most upbeat, kind, and thoughtful people I’ve ever known. She was 26 years old.
Some things came back clearer than others while drawing this. Memory often fails you when you need it the most.
