Thomas Moore explains the Marcus Hamilton cartoon above this way:
“Marcus and I met 35 years ago, while volunteering at Bethlehem Center in Charlotte. I thought he had moved away from this area when (Dennis creator Hank) Ketcham died.
“During a recent lunch meeting, his son from California called. He said to his son, “Guess who I am having lunch with?” His son and daughter remembered me as Mr. Keys on E-Z Street and as a friend of the family. Marcus and his wife are wonderful people. She joined us for lunch that day. We talked about our years of volunteering at Bethlehem Center.”
A video about Marcus Hamilton is here.
