Hi all,

I had the most wonderful opportunity to meet Mrs. Henson several years ago at a Sesame Workshop workshop. She took a great interest in what I was doing, what was on the horizon, etc. I will always be glad that I was able to meet and share some time with her.

A few long0time puppeteers delivered eulogies, and then everyone paraded down to the sunken garden on the O'Neill campus. A tree was planted in her honor, and everyone hung messages for Mrs. Henson on the tree. The ceremony concluded with a song - Rainbow Connection, of course. I hope someone recorded it...

That's wonderful. Someone might have recorded the whole tribute privately.

how sad to hear of her passing. She must be happy to be reunited with Jim Henson in heaven.
