No words just the sound of my heart crying
He was only 46, that’s too young
I know, my dad was born in 1957 too, so he’s the same age (or at least he was in 2004).
He seemed a helluva lot older than 46, even before the stroke. I thought he was in his late fifties, or possibly sixties.
Stress and unhappiness can age you. He had the constant physical stress of working the farm, but probably more stressful was the financial worries of the farm. He had responsibilities to his family both present and past (his parents). That ‘dutiful son’ on the headstone is possibly part of the reason he went to an early grave, which worries me because we all know what a dutiful son Frank is too. His Dad seemed to have become content with his choice of duty but I don’t think Frank will find much happiness doing so.
2004. Do I dare predict a time jump at some point? Maybe a prologue when they’re older.
Will this be the last hug between them… for a while?
epilogue xD prologue comes always BEFORE the story. but yes, im also curious about a possible time jump.
Oops.. I use to get those right, but not this time. Edited comment
He has the same birthday as me!
He has the same birthday as me. Also, amazing work on the flowers, no matter how many times I try to draw flowers I can never get them to look that awesome!
The juxtaposition of Mr. Murakami’s tombstone with the embracing couple seems ominous. Does it signify the death of Frank’s and Lee’s relationship?
To come to this page just 2 days after my own dad died… it’s a huge comfort to me. You’re not alone, Frank. And this makes me feel like I’m not alone either. Thank you.
Deepest sympathies on your loss…
Just as it started raining in the comic, it started raining here. Scared me half to death.
Wow… that’s the same date my dad died on last year.
