Poster Spark Keeper passed on sad news last night regarding our friend Cheshire Figment (Mike).

Mike had been such a source of knowledge on Disney ticketing over the years. He also was a great help and gave wonderful advice on working with various disabilities while visiting Disney World.

His very resourceful thread here was the very long running.....

Everything About WDW Tickets

He will very sadly be missed. Thanks for all your help and concern over all these many past years, Mike. God speed. Enjoy all the days ahead with your JudySue.

So sorry

    It is funny how people can touch our lives over the internet, even though we've never met them in person. Mike was one of those people, a wealth of knowledge, friendly, and always jumping in to help out. Though I never met him, I feel in some way as though I knew him just from the interactions here on the DIS.

    My condolences to his family!

    Oh, I am so very sorry to hear this. What a wonderful member of the DIS community he was. Just a gem. Seems like a good time to say to everyone here how much you are appreciated. This is a special place filled with special, caring people. Disney people.

    Sorry to be late posting. Been away. I am truly sorry to hear the news of Cheshire Figment's passing. I loved his timely and in-depth answers to ticketing questions. He explained more than cursory details so that we could understand Disney's ticketing functions, which can be very complicated, to say the least. Also, his great assistance with Disability questions was so helpful to that community of people. We learned so much from CF that will remain with us for years to come. He loved having Disney fun, and was a real gem to have among the DisBoard contributors. Our family will miss him very much.

    I was so sad to hear this news on the recent podcast. I never knew "Cheshire Figment'" real name until now, but I can say he was such a valuable member of the DisBoards community. He answered so many of my questions, and was always extremely generous and detailed in his responses. He will be missed. Sending prayers and positive thoughts to his family.
