    One of the things prompting the move seems to be the fact that her husband (on whom John Patterson is based) left her for a younger woman; she said somewhere that for some time she could barely stand to draw John in the strip.

    I just read the article and visited the website. I think that a retrospective approach is a respectful way to bow out… When you quit, you pack up and leave. When you retire, you can share memories and appreciation to the readers who helped make it possible. I'm not ready for it to end just yet.

    I was sad to read of Lynn's semi retirement and of ending fbofw as we know it. I would of like to have met April's boyfriend. Would like to know what happen to Iris when Jim passed away. Reading FBOFW every morning started me for the day. I'm not sure I can go back to the beginning when I know what the ending already is. I wish you luck while I no longer read the scrip. Thank you for 28 great yrs. Debra
