    Apparently, colleagues of Jerry have posted on Facebook that he's died.

    Wow. I don't know what to say.

    This will probably be breaking news on here tomorrow. In the mean time I can't say much because I am still in disbelief. I don't think it's real it can't be right? I mean he was just in the latest film. So he has to still be here...I don't even have words my whole body has just went numb...I can't even cry because I just can't believe it...

    :sympathy: I saw it on my Facebook wall from Muppet Wiki. I looked all over for news on Yahoo, Bing, and Google. Then I looked here and on Twitter and more FB posts, and I still can't believe it.

    We will miss you, Jerry. :(

    I don't believe it, but I'm sure it's true. I wish I knew for sure if it was actually true. If he did die, he will be missed by all of us. I think Count Von Count was his most popular character!

    For the Count alone, he would be remembered forever. Then there are all the others. RIP, Jerry, we will always remember, love and miss you.

    It's true everyone...

    Saying goodbye... Muppet legend, once-in-a-lifetime voice, irreplaceable soul, dear friend... Jerry Nelson has passed. We remember... and will never forget.

    Continue to share your favorite memories of Jerry and listen to Jerry's music on Muppet Central Radio on Live365 and Radio Terra. We'll be playing Jerry's songs non-stop for the next several days. He loved to sing and share his music with all of us. Read and remember... "Still Counting: An Interview with Muppeteer Jerry Nelson". :sing::batty::smirk:

    Love all the people in your life. Our time here is so short.

    I'm at a loss for words. I found out through a friend and its hard to believe. He is defiantly one of my greatest heroes and has been an inspiration to some of my own work. He will be greatly missed.
