You either created, affected, or worked on all of these projects, and potential ones that I have forgotten. You put your all into every single thing you ever did, whether it was a great success or a minor disappointment. You made us believe, even to this day, that those Muppets and puppets, creatures and features, are living beings. Creative genius, gentle soul, wonderful person. All of these terms and more can describe you. Your actions changed the world. We will miss you. We have been missing you. We will forever miss you.

 

Wherever you are, I hope that you are doing what you do best: Create.

 

Farewell, Jim Henson. I have nothing but the utmost respect for you.

 

R.I.P. Jim Henson: (1936-1990)

 

“The lovers, the dreamers, and me…” Kermit The Frog.

 

My hope still is to leave the world a bit better than when I got here.” Jim Henson.
