    I haven't cried for many many years, and this one almost brought it out! Really sad story, but atleast, there's some light to it. Pixar definitely did the right thing!

    Okay, Pixar was already really cool with me, but this just ups the scale in my opinion.

    Very touching...hope you liked it kiddo. RIP

    Good on Pixar, the fact that they were willing to do this really shows a lot of character, must be a terrific place to work. Not enough of that in this world.

    Nice job there from Pixar. I like this bit too

    Pixar officials declined to comment on the story or name the employees involved
    Which shows they did it for all the right reasons

    I read this article in the paper this morning... what a story... kudos to Pixar for making a dying little girls last wish come true. Thoughts and prayers go out to the little girls family and friends.
