A Very Special Boy and His Wookie 8-9-10

Today's strip is a memorial to Katie Johnson. I had detailed some of her story on my blog sometime last year. She is the darling who inspired pink astromech droid R2-KT. You can read more about her  on her site . Today is the 5th anniversary of her passing and I thought it only fitting to pay her tribute. Through her, and the amazing little droid that encompasses her legacy, many children, friends, fans,  and families have found happiness and hope.
It's also a bittersweet farewell to my little girls who will be returning home to Texas tomorrow. I'll miss them so, but just as the thoughts of Katie continue to bring a smile to her daddy's face, so to will the summer memories we built bring a smile to mine. Cheers R2 (Katie) I look forward to meeting you this Sunday at CV!

Michael, it was awesome to meet you at CV. Thanks for the caricature - everyone I've shown it to has enjoyed seeing me as Lando.
