For those at The Park today.. Please try to take a moment to find Robert Sherman's Window on Main Street (USA) and pay a small "Thanks" to one of the most wonderful, influential and important Disney Legends I've ever had the good fortune to meet. Robert passed away yesterday :-(. He was 86. The Sherman Brothers Window can be found on a door, at the top of a little stairway, between the Main St   More...

Thank you all. He truly will be missed. He didn't get out much in public the last 15 years, but it was great listening to his stories when we did see him. Oh and his brother Richard is SO funny. He cracks us up every time. Oh, another "little" story.... As most of you may know, "Feed the Birds" was Walts favorite song and he used to ask the Sherman Bros into his office on some Fridays when he was feeling a little down. The boys would come in and Walt would just say "play it boys" and they would of course and it always made Walt smile. SO... A few years back, on what would have been Walt Disney's 100th Bday, the Disney Co set up a piano near the then new Partners Statue in the Hub on Main St. So everyone was having free cake and enjoying the afternoon then Richard Sherman came out and sang "Feed the Birds" to Walt, right there in the Hub. I swear you could hear a pin drop. So as Richard is singing , you could tell he started choking up a bit, but he pressed on. After he was done he looked up at the statue and said, "Happy Birthday Walt..". and I swear, EVERYONE had tears in their eyes. For me, having been through a LOT of touching moments with Disney, this is THE moment I refer to when any asks me , "what is your favorite Disney moment ever?". Wow. I'm starting to tear up again. It was a very powerful moment that I'll never forget. :-) of the only time I've ever seen so many people openly cry at Disneyland ; - imtigger  21.5 #7423 3:57PM

By the way.. In the photo is my Laura and I with Robert at the 2002 summer NFFC Convention. He loved to paint as a personal hobby and around this time his Son talked him into releasing some of his incredible art to the public. This painting, called "Carrousel in the Country", hangs in my office as it has for the last ten years. He said his inspiration for it came from his love for Disney and of course the carrousel horses from Mary Poppins. He described this as him hanging on to the good things in his life (speaking of his career working with his brother Richard, for Walt Disney), while pushing through the thorn bushes that represent the more difficult times. :-) - imtigger  21.5 #7423 3:09PM
