Melt my heart




My six year old nephew is one of the most amazing people I've ever known. I adore him completely. This is a tiny conversation I had with him over Christmas and his concern for my well being was basically the best present I have ever received. With so much love for both Alexander and, of course, Lisa.

It's good to see this with the words, in its entirety. I've been waiting for it!
The honesty of kids, its brutal and refreshing. I had some moments with my little cousin Ryann (not so little now, at 13), but nothing quite this guttural.

Oh man, kids sure have the best timing. Hope you're holding up.

It's amazing seeing the finished product! The last panel really got to me. The manner in which it conveyed emotion was incredibly honest.

My older son, Jack, is 6 and I'm constantly amazed by what a sweet and perceptive person he's become. You seem to have a truly special relationship with your nephew. Thanks for sharing.

I can't tell you how much this means to me. Thank you for sharing this and please give Alex a big cuddle for me.

Miss you a million times over.
Love,
