- Reaction score
Stephanie D’Abruzzo has posted about Jerry's passing on her personal blog - http://stephaniedabruzzo.blogspot.ca/2012/08/jerry.htmlAnybody know if Frank Oz or any other performer reacted to his death yet?
There have been many, many comments from friends and colleagues of Jerry's on Twitter since his passing (search Twitter for "RIP Jerry Nelson" or just "Jerry Nelson") and a lot of comments on Facebook as well.My dear Puppet Family,
I had the magnificent gift of spending the afternoon with Jerry just before he left. We laughed and talked, as he drifted in and out. We talked about Richard Hunt, the old days and the fun we all had together. He wa
s his old charming, witty and funny self. We drank Dark and Stormys, I played an old beach guitar he had sitting in the corner and sang songs as he drifted around. I left about 7:00, and as we sat down to dinner at 8:15, Jan, his wife, called and said he was gone.
For those of you who were there when he spoke to the conference, you know what a master he was, of both character and performance. His gift is what he shared with all of us, all over the world.
It is a sadder world without Jerry, but we have his wonderful work to remember him by. I am grateful for the time we had with him.
Aloha ‘oe, my friend.
