Roy E. Disney's Health Declining?

Roy E. Disney, aka that damn nephew, has been the standard bearer of the Disney flame since the Walt Disney Company was targeted for takeover and Roy worked out a deal with the Bass family to bring in Michael Eisner and Frank Wells to save the company. He later fought Eisner for the soul of the company, eventually ousting Eisner and ushering in this current golden age for the Mouse House.

Sadly, I'm hearing rumors about Roy E's health being on the decline. Don't know more than that, and certainly, I hope it's not true. But there is the fact that he no longer races his yachts and, as far as I could tell, he wasn't present at the opening of the Walt Disney Family Museum. That may have been what led to the rumors, but then again the Museum was Diane's project, not Roy's.

Either way, send well wishes for good health and a long life to Roy E. Disney.
