This was the final cartoon that Robert Marker sent out on march 17th. At around 2pm on march the 18th a vagrant broke into Robert's house and stabbed him to death. The vagrant in question has been aprehended and is faceing murder in the first degree charges, and he has already confessed. allthough I find little solice in that fact.

I know that I looked forward to recieving every cartoon that he sent, and I'm sure that I wasn't the only one. Robert took the time to creat a cartoon for almost every holiday that you could think of, and some that you wouldn't think of. As I(Jack Marker) have said there will be many more cartoons, pictures and writings soon.Thankyou for taking the time to read my writings and feel free to let me know what you think of what I or my father has written.
Yes. Yes it is a self portrait, a good portion of his cartoons were.
Guess who? One more. I remember getting the cartoon, and like you always enjoyed them and I printed out everything he ever sent me. I have a Robert file! I was so afraid I had deleted this one after I heard about his murder, I was crushed, but then I found it, as always I had saved it! I keep finding little things he sent me over the years, and each time I sit down and read and look at everyone, then cry my eyes out for a while and again think what a wonderful thing that this amazing man was in my life for so long. I hope this deep, deep missing will eventually go, I know it gets better as I have been here too many times before, so that helps, I hope my telling the rest of you will help you too. Love,
