Cheshire Figment Will Not Be Down For Breakfast

Post by Big Wallaby » Mon Oct 26, 2015 12:33 pm

The other day, CycloneMan reported that Cheshire Figment is no longer with us. You might have seen him at Disney World on the coolest ECV ever because it was painted in the colors of Figment.

I was fortunate enough to meet him. I will remember him for his vast knowledge of Disney, great sense of snark and just enjoying the far too few times that I was able to spend time with him.


My opinions are mine and mine only. If my opinions are the opinion of others who happen to share whatever my crazy views may be, then fine, but it's not because I represent them in having my opinions. Got it?

Thank you very much for this Bryan.

As some of you may remember (I haven't been on here in years), I am CheshireFigment's nephew. This past summer he got really ill, and I've been taking care of him and basically putting my life on hold for him. It's been a really rough ride, but it was worth it because I loved him. I was with him till his last breath. My heart is heavy.

Thank you Uncle Mike for supporting me and being there with me through all those years.

Hi Dainan,

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your Uncle Mike. I know he was well respected here, and on board X. You did a great service for your Uncle by taking care of him, and I know he is proud of you. You will be in our prayers!

My condolences to his friends and family. I only knew him through this and Board X, but his posts were always the perfect combination of information and humour. His wisdom will be missed.
