A very sad day as we've lost one of animation's Great Masters and Statesmen; but we can take some comfort knowing his magic lives on.
We can also be grateful he and Ollie took the time to set down so much about the Secret Ingredients of their Sorcerer's Alchemy for all us starry-eyed Sorcerer's Apprentices.
A life greatly fulfilled.
A life that greatly fulfilled the lives of us all, not just animation artists, but people everywhere, transcending culture, language and beliefs.
We'll miss his presence among us beyond words, but happily can treasure his art and vision forever.
