My father has been cutting out the "Love Is" panels out of his LA Times newspaper for years because they reminded him of his relationship with my mother. My mother recently passed away and my father showed me one that he keeps in his wallet. It says "Together all the way". They were married 62 years. Something so small can bring someone so much joy....Thank you.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I recently attended a 50th wedding anniversary celebration which reminded me of your lovely comments and the incredible 62 years of marriage your parents had. I think it was Andre Maurois who summed up a happy marriage when he said 'A happy marriage is a long conversation that always seems too short'.

If it possible,I would like to see panels on Easter, Mother and Father's day.It's so good to open the papers and see panels connected to daily chores. Once again, thank you a million for making The Love is ... fans happy.

Hello Bill, My wife and I have cut out meaningful Love is... comics for each other for 30 years. One that is very dear to me has the and boy in a sailboat with the caption '...what puts the wind in your sails'. We are now retired and just purchased a sailboat which I would love to name Love is... if that would be possible. I would also like to put a small copy this of the original comic on her stern. Please let me know if this would be possible as I do not want to infringe on any copyrights. Thank you, Bob

I have been seeing Love Is ... comics since I was a teenager and recently started collecting them. I just found your website and found out that there were Sunday comics of Love Is ... for a British newspaper. Can you tell me where to find copies of these comics - I have never seen them in the US. Thanks

Dear Bill, I love "Love is." My mother and me used to keep each cartoon in a scrap book for several years. We used to smile each time we would browse through the book :) She passed away 4 years ago and last evening while clearing a drawer I saw the book again. It reminded me of my time with her and still remembered how much fun we had making our scrap book together :) Thank you for making her so happy when she was around! Much love, Aarti

I've always enjoyed "Love is..." Everyone makes me smile. Even when I'm not feeling much love in my life, reading one of your panels makes me feel the love. Thank you so much.

My mother in-law was a huge fan of Kim Casali's "Love is" comic. She adored the characters from a young age because her mother clipped them from every paper and posted them on the refrigerator claiming they looked just like her and her husband. My mother in-law's mother has recently passed away from breast cancer, and upon clearing out her house my mother in-law was very upset to find her favorite panel missing from the collection. The panel, from what she described to me, was the two characters and two children stating something along the lines of "Love is...Loving each other's children like they were your own". It would mean the world to her to have even a copy of this panel to see again. I cannot seem to find it anywhere and I would appreciate any help. Thank you so much, Happy Holidays!

Brittany Bennet: I have a Love is ... panel similar to the one you are looking for: "Love is ... ... loving your stepchildren as you do your own." I can send it to you but I would need your e-mail.

Hello! My son will marry his beloved for 13 years on July 5 2014 - and I will make a speech to them based on Love is.... I had all my cuts "smart placed" easy to find not long ago, but now I do not remember where to find them..... I have saved the Love is in years - from the start, so it's a big stack missing. I am looking for the one which in Norwegian says: Kjærlighet er å ta vare på hverandre. Love is to take care of each other.... but this may be not the exact translation in English. Hope I have luck in the searching on Internet!

Hi Bill, 40 yrs ago when I met my husband, he put a clipping of 'love is' on every letter to me whilst he was away in the Navy.
We have been divorced 19 years now but there is a twist in this 'love is' tale. We have remained close friends for part of that time & now he has advanced cancer & once again we are together. He is the father of my three children & sense & sensibility says I am the one to look after him.
As it is his 70th birthday I was stuck with the dilemma of 'what sort of card do I buy' then I remembered how much those 'love is'clipping meant to both of us.
Luckily today with the technology I am able to hopefully make a card for him with one of your clippings saying "take one day at a time" which I found on the website.
I just really want to say a huge thank you for all those wonderful clippings which still remain with me in my treasure box, who knows one day my chest of love letters & clippings will make interesting reading.

THANKYOU

I have loved the Love is comics for 38 years now, I'd cut them out of the newspapers and save them. I've lost them from moving place to place and thought I'd never see all of them again. I would love to have memorabilia from the Love is comics, keep up the great work and thank you so much for making me smile.

After a great commotion about Love is ... panel (October 14), that's the only thing I can wonder. It's a pity. We cannot forget the daily harsh comments on their nudity.
So, the just have to pay for the sinners. The losers are us , the Love is ... fans. :(
