Fiorella assumed Friday's comic strip was the finale of Candorville's touching tribute to author Darrin Bell's grandfather.  But more was to come.  Saturday morning Fiorella had a three-Kleenex cry when she saw Roscoe Bell entering heaven, throwing away his cane, and becoming young again--with a military cap on his head that looked strangely like a halo. In the last cell, Lemont/Darrin lay asleep with the cane propped against his bed. Grandpa was still watching.

And while writing this, Fiorella is grabbing for yet another Kleenex.
