Thanks so much for the kind words, I really appreciate it. Rami took the story to a whole new level.

This is a very well told and beautifully drawn personal account. A couple of my favorite modern writers and artists, Tim and Rami, you have awesomely documented this memory.
Not only is it well executed, but it’s very loving and respectful. The additional video clip was so devastating! Tim, this is an excellent piece all around.
Cool stuff. With the video clip, it REALLY becomes more real and I get the whole idea. That’s a pretty good idea, kind of interactive comix.
Thanks, Steven, I’m glad the video enhanced the story and didn’t detract from it at all.
And Mike, that’s wonderful high praise, coming from you–remember, I knew you when!
Gorgeous. Very poignant. Glad for the video, too.
Awesome. Page 5 is my favorite.
I love how this was all put together. Beautiful.

What is a good thing that I would like to propose to her.
