    I met Roy at Buena Vista Studios in Burbank at his office. Barbara his assistant was so kind.

    We had an mutual investment in Esprit Racing Yachts in San Diego. I have met Presidents and been to the White House but was never more impressed with anyone, he was kind and looked just like Walt. Really I was in awe. We lunched in the commissary and it was like a dream for a man who grew up looking forward to the “E” ticket God bless you Roy. And if any Disney family reads this please feel free to contact me.
