No! I just sent a letter and autograph request to Mr. Disney. Awful timing in my part, and on the part of his passing during the holiday season. RIP, sir.
The day after the anniversary of Walt's death, too. December must be a rough month for the Disney family.
Requiem aeternam, Roy. Thanks for fighting the good fight and continuing your father and uncle's vision.

Wow, prayers to the family as they deal with the loss of a loved one.
P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.
Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.
A big shock for the Disney community. The man who helped rebuild his uncle's empire has passed away forty-three years to the day of his uncle's passing. My condolences go out to the family.
Have a Great, Big, Beautiful Today!

Yeah, I heard about it at work. This has been an awful year for us, as we've lost a few people, on top of the numerous jobs. Do you know what really hit close to home? When two of the people who have died this year worked at my very work location.
RIP, Roy. The Disney community grieves your passing, and our wishes go out to the family.
