"We are saddened to learn that Jeanette Thomas, widow of animator Frank Thomas, passed away Saturday night. Jeanette and Frank both gave me great support and encouragement when we first started our projects—first with the film Walt: The Man Behind the Myth, and subsequently, The Walt Disney Family Museum. The Thomases were always so supportive, and their support meant so much to us. Our thoughts and condolences go out to their family and friends."
