For what it's worth.....I just wanted to share that Jerry Nelson is the reason I had a career in puppetry and had the pleasure of working with the Muppets on Muppets Tonight. As an awkward high school kid, I wrote a fan letter to Jerry and asked if I could visit the set of Henson's big show at the time, Dinosaurs. Jerry not only read the letter, but passed it on to Kevin Clash who called and invited me to the set. I visited, and fell in love with the craft of puppetry. Jerry was a tremendously kind soul and will be so deeply missed by all those whose lives he has touched. Thanks, Jerry.
