It was inevitable, of course, and imminent, but I still dreaded the day it would happen. Frank Thomas has passed away, the darling old coot made it to 92. Now Ollie's the only one left. Thank you, Frank, for everything.

Damn.
damn damn damn.

I was lucky enough to see the documentary "Frank & Ollie" on the big screen in its original release; looks like it's time to see it again. He'll definitly be missed and remembered.

So sad - what an important artist... At least he got a lot of recognition over the last 20 years (many other Disney artists haven't had that)...
Now it's just one "9 old man" left...
