    Pretty oblivious of me to just find this out, but none the less depressing news. Especially since I almost went to the Jim Henson's Magic World exhibit the day she was speaking. I'm never good at commenting on these things. My sympathies go out to the Henson family. I haven't lost my parents yet, but I can't imagine anything being as terrible as that.

    It's really too bad that the Wilkins Coffee company went out of business. No other beverage would seem worthy enough for drinking a toast to Mrs. Henson. Otherwise, I'd be raising a steaming mug of it high right now.

    Nevertheless...my condolences to the Henson kids, her loved ones and anyone that her heart touched.

    And now, a new series of Sam and Friends can begin taping up there. Until us folks down here have a chance to see it, for now, goodbye Jane. We love you and miss you.

    This is the first time I've been on the Internet since Sunday evening, and just found out through the A.V. Club. Also, I'm not terrific with these things either.

    R.I.P. Jane. My condolences to the entire Henson and Muppet family.

    I haven't posted in this thread yet because I haven't known what to say. I still don't, really... just that this news has deeply saddened me. My sympathy to the Henson family in this time.

    I've just read the many tributes to Jane Henson who has just died. Firstly I was sad to hear the news, but like her husband Jim a great human being. Thanks to Jane and her faith in her Jim for creating such wonderful Muppet characters over the many decades. My thoughts are with Jane's family and friends at this sad time, but what wonderful memories you must all have of such a very special lady.

    Awww! This is so sweet! I forgot Jane was a mother to him, but he was always with Jim. Like father, like Frog! (sighs) Thanks for sharing this wonderful tribute, FrackleFan.
