    Mr. Nelson,
    Thank you so much for keeping us up to date on your current health struggles. I'm glad you were well enough to let us all know how you were doing. We have all been very concerned with how you were doing. I will keep this brief as I'm sure you don't get on here often and when you do have much to catch up with, but please know that we wish you all the best and really appreciate your participation on this message board and of course your contributions to the Muppets and works of the Henson Company.
    Best wishes, Melissa Y.

    Mr. Nelson.

    I did not realize exactly how ill you were until I came across this thread. I deeply sympathize and pray you recover speedily.:sympathy:

    Thank you for the replies you have given my occasional Private Message and I loved the joke you made in the last one. You have a fantastic sense of humour:D

    Best wishes from Martin

    Oh my gosh!!! Jerry, it's such an honor to have you posting here at our wonderful forum! I knew that you guys visit it from time to time, but I had no idea you really actually posted here. I would just like to say I am terribly sorry to hear about what all you've had to and are still going through, while at the same time, I too am so happy to hear you're doing better, and I'm super-thrilled that you're going to keep on counting with The Count!

    I hope you post again soon!
    Your fan, "D'Snowth"

    It was so nice of you to post and update on how you are doing. The original post may have been old, but our interest in your welfare has not waned. We were concerned, and glad to know you are feeling up to some Sesame Street antics for us this year. Thanks so much for keeping us in the loop, and, as others have already said--please let us know if there is anything we can send you in cyberspace. With fondest wishes and tremendous respect,

    Hey Jerry,
    You have always had nothing but the utmost respect from me. I have learned so much from watching your performances over the years. I wish I could work with you again some day. Give my best to Jan. Keep resting and take care.
    Your biggest (and maybe) oriiginal fan,

    Ugh... Please forgive me for not coming here sooner.

    Ah... What to say?
    1 Your post total: N/A? That made me laugh.
    2 Rully hope you can get somewhat better, regarding your current health.
    3 It warms the heart to know you're still performing your classic characters, and occasionally new ones as well.
    Would hope we may get the chance to meet each other some day...

    Take care and post when you get the chance.

    From one Count to another.

    Welcome to the message boards, Amanda. At MuppetFest I spoke to 2 sisters of Richard's, no doubt one was your mom? I could see the family resemblance while visiting, and they were both very, very sweet ladies!

    It seemed that Richard was a very giving, caring, and fun individual, and the kindness I could see in him was very visible in his sisters. Let them know that they are also invited to visit and post at Muppet Central when able.

    I also look forward to Jerry's visits again. Always inspiring me!

    I'm a cartoonist and a longtime Muppet fan from way back. I wanted to share this story with you:

    Just a few years ago now, my girlfriend (now fiancee), knowing how huge a Muppet fan I was, tricked me into drawing my favorite Muppeteers with their characters as a supposed gift for a friend of hers. As it turned out, the trick was on me, as she took the caricatures I drew (of you and Floyd, Dave and Gonzo and Bill and Pepe) and sent them off to the Henson Company in New York with the hopes of getting them autographed and sent back to her as a gift for me on my birthday.

    By the time my birthday rolled around, she still hadn't heard back from the Henson Company. Believeing that she'd sent the caricatures to the wrong department, she just came out and told me of her plans. I was touched that she even tried to pull something like this off, and told her the effort she made was the best gift I could get.

    A couple days later, however, we received a thick manilla envelope in the mail with a familar green face on the front. Carefully opening it and removing the contents, there before the both of us were my childhood dreams laid out on 8 1/2 X 11 paper, my caricatures, fully autographed by my childhood and adult heroes, amongst them, you, the great Jerry Nelson. Needless to say, I was touched beyond belief that she went to this trouble, and just as much that you guys took the time to honor her request. So now that I hear that you're on the road to recovery and saw this chance to catch you attention, I just wanted to say thank you for your simple, kind gesture, which not only made my birthday (the greatest by far) but my life a little bit brighter. You'll always be one of my heroes.
