Jesus, Splotch. You made me start blubbering at work.

I couldn't even PLAY this clip. Couldn't even start, because I remembered seeing it before. MizBubs stopped me, and we had to quickly find happy Sesame Street memories to kill the pain.

Thanks

MizSplotchy asked me why the hell I was watching these memorial videos. I had never seen them before, and I really was overwhelmed with emotion by them.

But, I felt a really strong loss when Henson died, something I never really shared with anyone.

It was a really powerful thing for me to see these videos, and that's why I wanted to include them here.

I don't know, it was more cathartic than anything. I felt like I was with those people, that in some way I was able to say goodbye.

I miss him, still.

I was coping right up to the end where he looked up to the sky and said thanks Kermit..
