kshandra: long-haired woman silhouetted against a stormy sky (Bad)
Phil Frank, whose cartoons graced the pages of The Chronicle and other newspapers for more than 30 years, died Wednesday only a few days after he announced his retirement because of illness.

I'm a little disturbed by how hard this is hitting me...I was heartbroken on Monday when [livejournal.com profile] gridlore read me the article announcing Phil's retirement, but I never got the impression that he was terminal.

Oh no. :(

"He died at an old friend's house in Bolinas his family had rented for his final days. It was within the sight of the Bolinas lagoon and his beloved Marin hills, and just up the road from the cemetery where the pioneers of the town were buried." --

That's an amazing thing, though.

May he rest in peace; may those who loved him find comfort in memory.

May his memory be for us a blessing.

I know nothing about Phil Frank's private life, but his work exuded a warmth and wit that make it hard to believe that he was full of anything else.

I feel your pain.
