Guest Book Highlights

May 23, 2020 "My father grew up with Mort Walker in the northeast sector of Kansas City, MO. In his later years we would drive my father around his old neighborhood and he never failed to point out Mort Walkers house. Sadly, my father passed away in May, 2018, also at age 94. RIP Mort Walker." - Bill Van Buskirk (Overland Park, KS)
February 12, 2019 "Neal, We are very sorry to learn of Mort's passing. He left behind a tremendous legacy which has been, and will be, enjoyed my millions. Our deepest condolences to you and your family." - John Lenzycki & Jennifer Laros (Bridgewater, CT)
July 23, 2018 "59060 memory lane. YUCCA valley. CAL, 92284" - JAMES REGIMBAL (YUCCA Valley. CAL, 92284)
February 10, 2018 "I loved Mort. I grew up on Beetle Bailey and the funnies. Years later, he became a model to our son, an amateur cartoonist and lover of "Mr. Walker's Work." Then, several years later, as a museum consultant I received a call from Mort and Katherine, asking me to work on the International Museum of Cartoon Art in Boca Raton and later in New York City. He was a man of deep passion and intelligence, a great talent, visionary and collector (what a collection)--with a zest for life and deep love of family. One might be able to "erase cartoonists as they age," but Mort and influence endure forever." - Marjorie Share (Washington, DC)
February 07, 2018 "May his light continue to shine." - Kim Munson (Pacifica, CA)
