Bespin refugee - September 11, 2021

According to his daughter, Tom Kane, who narrated and voiced Yoda on The Clone Wars, has been forced into early retirement, after suffering a stroke last year. She says, "He has what’s called Apraxia which means he has difficulty moving smoothly from one sound, syllable or word to another...He has a handful of words he says perfectly, but just a handful. He relies on all forms of non verbal communication now.

Ahhh man... that sucks. For me, he'll always be the "voice of the monorail" at Walt Disney World. Every time I hear his voice in some other work, I instantly recognize it. I really hope he recovers quickly.

That's rough I wish him a speedy recovery.

May the force be with him in this most difficult of times.

He won't see this, but I wish him well.
