On the night of August 23, friends and colleagues of beloved veteran Muppeteer Jerry Nelson posted the news on Facebook that Jerry had passed away.  The news is not a complete surprise, as Jerry's health had been declining in recent years. But when a man whose work has meant so much to so many people passes on, it's impossible not to feel shock.
