Rest in Peace, dear Mort.
Rest assured that your memory shall live on forever in the characters that you created, bringing smiles to so many.
A day without cats is like a day without sunshine.
I speak meow, do you?

Have made friends in this life.
Most were cats.

Thats sad. I have enjoyed many of his comic strips and books.
In Sweden “Beetle Bailey” is known as “Knasen” .
It enjoyed huge popularity.
Walker is famous for creating the cartoon character "Knasen", but also the series "Familjen Flax" (Hi and Lois) and "Sam & Soli".
